Hello everyone..

Hope you are all well and staying safe..

I was mucking around in my room the other day, well, six weeks ago more than likely, and found my water colouring pencils so had a little play..

Stamped the image onto Canson water colour paper..

Thank goodness for my stamping platform as this paper is pretty thick and had to stamp with Memento black ink at least 5 times to get a proper impression..

These pencils are still brand new, shame on me for not using them..

Found 2 different pinky reds to colour with and spread it all with a paint brush and water..

Very pleased how it came out..

Added a few gems which shine up nice on the side view..

And this last photo got tweaked a bit and I made it a bit more vivid, more true to its colors really..

Right, I'm off, have heaps to do for tomorrow, I'm old fashioned when I cook, prawn cocktails..scallop mornay's, roast pork and trimmings and pavlova with fruit, my gallbladder just groaned and the thought of all the lactose made my tummy churn, but what a way to go.. doesn't happen every day.

Thanks so much for stopping by, catch you soon..

Such a lovely floral image Chrissy! You've really done a beautiful job with your color pencils too! I don't do this hardly at all and really need to get my hundreds of pencils out to play more! Thanks for the inspiration my friend! HUGS

Oh Chrissy, I love the softness of water coloring that you can still create depth with. Beautiful card! I'm going to have to try using mine and my Zig pens one if these days.
