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.
