I love flowers....

Hello there, thank you for stopping by!!!

I love water coloring. And I especially love water coloring flowers!!!
I am still learning new techniques (new to me anyway). There are several designers that I follow and watch on You Tube. That helps a lot, because you can watch it several times and kind of go along with what they are doing. Of course it never comes out exactly the same, but we wouldn't want to do that anyway.

So I saw a technique on  and You Tube channel where she embossed the flowers in white and then kind of "washed" them with 3 colors, from light to dark.  I just loved the look, so soft and natural.  So I decided to work on that. I stamped a whole bunch of flowers in white embossing and tried to wash them like she did.  The white embossing turned out to be too thick and didn't do too well on small leaves, etc. but the flowers were pretty successful.

This card is the favorite of all the ones I tried.  I love this stamp from Altenew and couldn't wait to try it with this technique. However, the flowers were too close together so I couldn't do it exactly, but I like the way it turned out anyway. I love the colors and the way they worked together.
I also added flower soft for the centers.

Here's my card:

I love this stamp,
