One Layer Watercoloring

Hello!

I'm back again today with another one layer card for the Hero Arts challenge.



If you missed yesterday's card, using masking and stamping, you can see it here.

I wanted to enter another card for the challenge but this time with watercoloring. The Peerless Watercolors are amazing! The colors are so vibrant but you can also create softer looks by using more water, like I did on my card today.




The flower was white embossed against my watercolor background. I then added more intense color using the same shades. Both the image and sentiment are from the Hero Arts set called, Making The World a Better Place.

I'm also entering this into the challenge over at A Blog Named Hero


It's a beautiful day here so I am heading outside. Thanks for stopping by! ♥

Hello Barb,
Oh this is so you at your best. I love the fluidity of your design created by the watercolours and of course the palette is wonderful.
