CAS WATERCOLOUR

I have had this piece stamped with antique linen distress ink on my desk for several weeks - wanting to do some no-line watercolouring - but kind of reluctant to even try it.  So when I saw the challenge today on CAS Watercolour, decided it was time to take the plunge.



The image is from a Concord & 9th set - Happy Words.  Colored the flower with distress worn lipstick, the center with scattered straw and the leaves with peeled paint and water.  I used some watercolor pencils to add a little definition.  Finally used a light gray Zig and water to do the shadow around the flower.   Die cut it with a stitched rectangle and put on a soft gray base popping it up with some fun foam.  Couldn't decide where to put a sentiment, so just left it as is.





Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
