Watercolor

Blended Seasons

Who likes to watercolor? I have wanted to like it but I have never done anything where I thought it looked good, until now.  I really do love this piece. It will be made into a card but I was so excited to share this that I had to do a blog post asap! Don’t get me wrong, I still need lots of practice but I finally am happy enough with a piece to share it with you all.

I stamped the flower and sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

What do you think? For any watercolor experts out there I would love your feedback as how to improve on this.

All the products I used are listed below.

Blended Seasons

I decided with the help of a few friends to go with a Blueberry Bushel mat and then Balmy Blue for the card base. I just love how it came together! 2.png
