Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms Watercolouring


I love watercolouring!! I love it a LOT - it makes me feel so very artistic!!  
And Birthday Blooms is the PERFECT set to have fun watercolouring.  
I tried something new this time with my watercolouring - I totally saturated the watercolour paper first, and then watercoloured the image as usual.  Because of the water already on the paper, this made the colour run and move around - giving the image a misty blurry effect which looks ever so artistic I think!!  


This week Paper Players have an awesome watercolouring challenge - I had to join in the fun !!  If you click on the graphic, you'll see the fantastic projects and inspiration from the design team!!


And because I was having such a grand time watercolouring - I've made 2 cards!!  This one has a traditional orientation and some gold thread wrapped around the image.

  1. I agree this is a great set for watercolouring Julia and your blooms are lovely - I just love the layering and torn edge on the first one too. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
