Watercolour Roses

Good Thursday Morning - Quickly before heading to school....

Yesterday afternoon was full of challenges to be sure. I saw THIS fantastically beautiful card by Debbie at Stylish Creations yesterday and knew right away I wanted to try her technique out. I am NOT a painter, or what I would call an artist and wow did I struggle with a fun sort of way though. I had my daughter watching over my shoulder (she brought the exercise ball into my stamping room to sit on... LOL). I had to come back to the computer to look at Debbie's card a couple of times.

I tried using my Whisper White card stock, but the inks ended up looking like I was doing a chromatography test (I had to remind Allison of her Grade 6 "Evidence and Investigating" unit in science.) I ended up using my watercolour paper - this is actually a practice piece - I may put some of the other ones on cards - but I need to do a lot more practicing too....I will persevere!

The sketch for this is from Splitcoast this week.

Gotta go - I have more to share with you after school. Have a great day!!!
