Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday/Wednesday Challenge - Stamp It

I was racking my brain for another idea I haven't done, so I attempted watercolour.  This card was inspired by a how-to video on MFT Stamps Blog.  I haven't done this at all period, so I was quite surprised that it turned out pretty well!  What you can't see is the Wink of Stella I blinged the flower with.  It just doesn't show in my photos….

Stamps used:  Spring Flowers by Simon Says Stamp; Delicious Birthday by MFT Stamps.

Wow! I am stunned that you're not a watercolor pro because this card is AMAZING! The colors are blended so beautifully and I am amazed at how much dimension you've given to the flower. I really liked how you made the petals almost translucent-- it is quite a magical effect and I've never seen anything quite like it. You did an incredible job and if this is one of your first attempts at watercoloring, I can't even imagine what you'll do later on! You have some serious skills! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this entry and am so glad you shared your work with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Thank you for your kind words Andrea! I appreciate all of these challenges that get my creative juices moving (and a great distraction from life). And FTR, I had two watercolours going at the same time :D I've found it's all about patience to allow it to dry before adding more layers. Definitely going to try it again!
