A bit of watercolouring...

Good morning folks!

The sun is out and I am off work so before I get on with the housework I thought I would share my latest creation.

I actually spotted these flowers on youtube and they were also watercoloured, I just loved it when I saw it so I already had the stamps so I followed the tutorial by Kristina over there for colouring and making this card. 

This didn't actually take me that long but I first of all stamped and white embossed the flowers and the stems, I also had to mask off the flowers so I could overlap them....oh and it was really difficult to see the white embossing so one of my stems is a bit off centre.....I guess that's what makes it!

Next I started colouring the flowers using my zig pens, now I started with light colours and then gradually added darker colours to give the flowers a bit of don't have to be great at colouring which is what I love about's so forgiving if you make a mistook!

Once I was happy with the colours I then added some shading around the flowers and then I added some slpodges...these are so cool and funky and I also added my checked effect backing...I think this looks quite funky against the vibrant colours.

This is beautiful... I love the look of it! I just saw a technique on YouTube via Pinterest by Virginia (of Virginia's View) did that had a similar look, but hers was with alcohol inks. Anyway, I love yours!
