Watercolor Floral Arrangement - Game #10

As with every awesome challenge Victoria has presented us so far at AAA Cards - I have been outside of my comfort zone. I am loving the journey of discovering new (to me) techniques. 
Today, we are to PLAY with watercolor techniques. I've taken a shortcut and use Distress markers and inkpads direct to stamps and onto watercolor paper. I've used an aqua brush because I don't own any official paint brushes. 

I hope you will play today with watercolors and join the challenge!


Check out this video for my watercoloring inspiration.

Hey Angela, I love your watercolor flowers. The colors are amazing. I also love the sparkle in the center of the orange flower. The twine and the pattern paper is a great additive. Nicely done.
