Color Theory with Wilna Furstenberg

You guys! I’m taking a class over at Studio Calico with the one and only Wilna Furstenberg and I just had to pop in here and tell you that I am truly loving the class so far. Class just started on Monday and we have had 2 lessons. So good. I could watch Wilna work all day, and her voice is so calm and relaxing. Everything she does makes me happy — she’s one of my heroes.

Just for You

I made this card before class started and I thought I posted it, but I must not have! You know how it goes.

First I used Studio Calico Sunny Day Color Theory ink and a wide waterbrush to make the background, then I splattered on some silver mist.

Just for You

After cutting Wilna’s flower vase with my silhouette, I went ahead and watercolored it too. Then when it was dry I heat embossed it with clear powder — it really makes it vibrant plus it keeps the piece from being too fragile. I attached it with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher — aren’t those mini staples cute?

I finished it off with a “just for you” sticker sheet that’s in the Studio Calico Cirque card kit — love this kit so much. (And there are still some available, can’t believe it they haven’t sold out.)


If you’d like to sign up for the class, just click on over HERE. Registration is open until March 13th and I think this is going to be one of those classes you’ll kick yourself for missing out on. Oh and, included in the class are some awesome cut files by Wilna too. Not this one, but they are equally good. Just sayin. :)

    Cute card. Love the colors and I love the idea of heat embossing over the watercolor. I may try that tomorrow. We have about 8 or 10 inches of snow from today and the drive way isn’t cleared yet, so I’m stuck. I may as well play! :)

    1. Sounds like a good plan to me! :)

  2. This is fabulous!!!! I’m taking the class but haven’t had time to play yet

    1. Thanks so much, Char!

  3. This is so pretty Lisa, love the colors – especially the colors of the vase!

  4. Hey Lisa did I understand you that you used your silhouette to cut out the vases? I wrote on the message board and asked if they were cut files and Wilma said she did not design them to be cut files and would be very interested to see how they turned out

    1. Hi Char, yep I did use my silhouette to cut the vase. The link to the digi kit is up in the blog post. I cut out a whole bunch of them, I think I used the .png file and then I traced it in the silhouette software maybe? It’s been a while. Love all of Wilna’s flowers and vases so much!
