Some pretty flowers...

Hi everybody, hope you are all well!

So today I decided to do a bit of watercolouring...I think I love these stamps and I think I love watercolouring!! This is so easy to do and you don't have to be great at colouring...Ijust love the effect, it's fab!

First, here's a wee close up...

So first I cut a piece of watercolour card and then white embossed the flowers, I actually had to mask them so I could overlap...that actually took me longer to cut and mask than it did to colour!

Edited: forgot to say the stgamps are from Tim holtz Flower Garden set.

Then I started colouring with my watercolour pens, starting with the lightest to darkest and just gradually adding colour until I got the shade I wanted.

I added a sentiment and some sequins to finish.

These are fabulous Fi! I'm loving your watercolouring.. Funnily enough I coloured the very same flowers yesterday, but can't show till Wednesday as they're for a friend's birthday! I used Zig Clean Colour pens... such vibrant shades!

You've so got this style cracked Fiona, loving the real pop of colour.
The black ink on the white background really makes the flowers stand out too.

Saw this card on Pinterest tonight and was just mesmerized by it; my eyes kept going from one flower to another and back again. You did a beautiful job with the layout, your painting, and your color choices! I'm so very happy to have discovered you!
