watercolour flowers | #tgifc25

Ah ha! Did you think I forgot about you?
Well, you see I was busy travelling for work and I went on a special trip to see Madonna's Rebel heart tour.  When I returned from home, I was greeted with the Stomach Flu! Yahoo!

This card was created as part of the TGIF challenges Design Team.
It's their 25th challenge!
This week's challenge is to be inspired by the following picture:

This was a problem.
I didn't know what to do with that picture.
So I decided to pull a "Connie Collins" and did repeated stamping.

I did so on watercolour paper with my favourite gold embossing. I then coloured using my ink pads and the aqua painter.

A TIP! Don't forget to use a heat gun to dry your colouring between layers. A good rule of thumb is after each colour or even if you want a lot of that "water droplet" look then between layers of colour.

ANOTHER TIP! Always remember the darkest part will be coloured first. I often colour until there's no colour left. Then my next bit of colouring will be where I want it the darkest.

Have a great day and "hello" again!
