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 handmade...lol!
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 depth...you don't have to be great at colouring which is what I love about watercolouring...it'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.
