Watercolour Flowers

Hello!  Another card using the watercolouring technique.  I used the embossing in white resist technique again as well.  This time I used watercolour pencils though.  Here's my card...

I used watercolour paper again for the background part.  First stamping with the flower stamp (Hero Arts), embossing in white then playing around with the water colours until I liked it.  What I did was colour with the pencils on a separate piece of paper first the watered them down to transfer the colour to my panel.  While this was drying I stamped the same floral stamp using my black StazOn ink and this time coloured in the flower directly then adding water carefully, blending the colours.    Then I just stamped my sentiment (Fiskars) and attached this panel to my other watercoloured one.  I put that on a card base made of Whirlpool (Bazill Basics) cardstock.

Once again I'm linking up to Virginia's View challenge.  Also linking up to STAMPlorations where they've got sketch challenge #7 going on.

Also linking up to Hero Arts birthday challenge.  This would fall under the floral birthday category.  Lastly linking up to Curtain Call.  Haven't played in a while but there inspiration photo helped me choose the colours of my card.

Well, that's all for now.  Hope you have an awesome day and thanks for visiting!
