Watercolour Homework: A Flower - Or Two
Some homework for Days 3-4. I used an acrylic block for the background, then inked up my flower stamp with markers. I'm entering this into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Spring Flowers.
And also into Keep It Simple: Watercolour - it's a busy challenge, coinciding as it does with the Online Card Class.
I made another version of the card, this time using Wida's card at CASE Study as inspiration. I wanted to do a one layer card so I kept the background drier so that it was more speckled, which also mimicked Wida's background. The yellow didn't show up as well as I'd hoped so I took a fine liner pen (0.005) and drew an outline around the flower.
Here's Wida's card:
