 Morning folks...

Well this card didn't go according to the plan I had in my head...seems to be a theme these days ha ha! 

I first added some distress ink to the background to give it a kind of marbly effect, this is the only part that went according to plan.  I then stamped the leaves with distress inks, I left it to dry a bit and then I started watercolouring the leaves with a few different shades of distress inks.  The ink on the stalk started to bleed out and I had already spent ages colouring so I didn't want to waste it so I then ran my waterbrush over the image to make some of the green bleed out.  This did actually look better than before. Again I left it to dry and then added a bit more colour.  I then added some little splashes in green, white and gold and finishes with a few sequins.

I have to say I do love colouring with watercolours and I do love this stamp, it's one of my favourites.
