Pretty Birthday Blooms

Birthday Blooms Occ2016 (5)

Hello again!

Ha Ha! I am a little afraid to show you this card! I was actually a bit chuffed with the result until I looked again at the card that was the inspiration for this one! Then I had to laugh! I still have a lot to learn when it comes to watercolouring!!! 😀 😉

So the stamping is done with a light coloured stazon ink. I used Momento “Desert Sand”. I think I needed to add a bit more water to the card to give the painting a bit more of a washed look. The colours just aren’t ‘flowing’ into each other enough.

I think I might try this same card again sometime … and see if I can improve on the watercolouring! If you do go and check out the original inspiration … and believe me it is worth checking out … please don’t laugh! Promise me!?
