Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Fun with Flowers


Good Morning!!!! Sorry I'm a little late on the uptake, but I didn't have my publish setting accurate! Here I am now with my Fun with Flowers Challenge card.

I have to tell you that I am totally Inspired by my Fellow Team mate Ilina's use of colour on florals. So much, that she enabled me to purchase the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

This was my first attempt at watercolouring flowers.

I chose the flower from the Maya stamp set as it is a nice size, which is perfect for colour practice. I embossed the flower in white; a great idea when starting with watercolour to ensure you stay in the line!

I had a lot of fun experimenting with different colours! Next time I watercolour, I'll keep track of the pens that I used and make note here for you.

I really love the vibrancy of the markers. So much so, that I didn't want to cover up my "work of art: hehe! I decided to choose a fine die that I thought would enhance, rather than distract from the flowers!!!!

I am excited to see what you all do this week!
