I've said it before and I'll say it again - I don't know what I'm doing with watercolors but I'm gonna keep trying. My aunt just happened to have divine watercolor set and I nabbed it while her back was turned so I could try my hand at it again (don't worry... I gave them back eventually). :D
Anyhow, I used some deep reds, and some brilliant blues and teals to create my card, and I painted on the stems afterward with Perfect Pearls before surrounding the whole thing with a layer of gold and embossing a sentiment.
I really like how it turned out and just purchased an online watercolor class to start honing my skills!
Since Penny Black's current challenge is Summer Flowers, I'm going to send this over their way to play along.
I'm also going to link it up to:
House of Cards - Metallics
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes
Try it On Tuesday - Sending you Flowers
Shopping our Stash - Use a Wet Medium
Funny Story: If you're my facebook friend, apologies, because you've probably already heard this. But since I think it's hilarious, I'm going to share anyway.
The male pedicurist who was giving me a sugar scrub stopped, rubbed his hand over that spot and said loudly, "you don't shave all spots!?" And then counted out loud the number of hairs "One. two. Three. Four. Five. Six." (Not making this up)
At first I turned beet red in mortification but then I burst out laughing!! Haha! And when it came time for him to ask me what design I want I said, "the six hair design, please!!" Best pedicure ever. This is why I can't be fancy.
It's all about the laughter, isn't it? :) Hope this gave you a smile!
