Watercolor cards (Day 1)

I finally decided that I needed to learn more about how to use watercolors when making cards.  I signed up for a class at Online Card Classes.  The class I chose was 'Watercolor for Card Makers'. The class is an independent class.  I decided that I would do each of the techniques, and finish the cards in a similar manner to what was shown.  This would provide me the opportunity to try many different watercolor techniques, and would push me to make cards in a style that is not what I would normally do.

Here are my versions of the cards from Day 1 of the class.  I won't go into specific of how the cards were made (for this you should take the class), but will provide the supplies I used.  Day 1 classes were about watercolor backgrounds.
