I'm not usually much of a fan of watercolouring, but I've treated myself to a pad of water colour paper and have started to experiment a bit. For this card, I stamped a very old unmounted flower stamp with and heat-embossed it with gold EP, then coloured in the image using Marvy markers and a waterbrush.
For each section, I lightly coloured with a pale colour, drew it out with the waterbrush to fill the space, then dotted a darker colour onto the wet paint and used the waterbrush again to blend the two. For the background, I did short sections at a time, drawing a line close to the edge of the image with a very pale yellow marker then washing it outwards with the waterbrush.
I'm sharing this with lots of challenges today! (well, lots by my standards)
