Here are a list of some of the watercolour mediums that you can use to create watercolour cards (all mentioned in the video and sampled below). I have included different sizes and quantities that are currently available.
I generally link to Simon Says Stamp or Amazon. No guarantee these are the best prices out there.

As mentioned in the video, here are some of the tools you may want to purchase/need (see video) when watercoloring.

Here is a comparison chart of the different products I spoke about in the video. You can see each medium. Most of the mediums do the same thing besides the Color Burst however, they do vary in usage.

Distress Inks are something most have already and are a great place to start experimenting with watercolours without actually having to buy any. Use a craft mat, "smush" some colour on it and add water!

Zig Real Brush Color Markers are all the rage at the moment and are fun to use. You can colour directly, on top of water or directly and blend with water. 

Gansai Watercolours are by far my favourite of of those I tried. I like the packaging, the way it stores, the colours and the quality. Top notch paints!

Inktense (sorry for the spelling error in the photo) are great pencil crayons that can blend with water. A little colour goes a long way and you can blend multiple colours together.

I'm new to the world of colour bursts! I love them so far. I experimented with two ways. Above, I sprinkled some powder on the paper and spritzed with water. You will never get the same look twice.

On this sample, I added the powder to the water. On the right where it is faded I tried blending with a paint brush. Both ways make very different looks.

Here are a bunch of videos from the past that feature the watercolour technique - just in case you can't wait until tomorrow for Day 1!

These references are available for your personal use. You may "copy" my cards but please link back to the class. It is forbidden to use my card designs for publication. All opinions and knowledge are my own. I am not being paid for this class nor has anyone asked me to make it.
