WATERCOLOURING...!!!

Don't know about less is more it's 'Better Late than Never' in my case! Another tricky challenge over at Less is More this week and I wasn't going to bother but a little voice in my head said ' Go on ... give it a go!'  So I have and here's my entry.

Years ago and I mean years ago I went to some local card making classes and on ONE occasion we had to use watercolour pencils to colour a stamped image and I've had a small tin of the pencils since then. You buy these things and they never see the light of day again? Anyway mine did today along with one of the very first rubber stamps I bought and I think it's either Docrafts or Anita's. There should be a couple of extra images to the side but I masked those off as I think it looks better with just the one stem.

As I've mentioned the rubber stamp already I won't do a 'card recipe' but in case you are interested the sentiment is from Uniko Studios.

I've inked up the background then stamped the image and finished off with the pencils adding water to blend and shade which is not my forte ... so here it is
