Water colour Roses

Morning! I hope you're having a lovely Sunday! Before I get on to my card today, I wanted to let you know about a Festive Giveaway over on the Buttons for Brains Facebook page. All you need to do is like us and share the giveaway by weds 17th sept to be in with a chance to win these goodies! Good luck!

Now onto my card. I'm sure you've all seen Dawn from WPlus9's water colouring videos - if not, why not?! They're amazing! :-) This one especially got my attention so I gave it a go, although I feel a bit mean as I tried the technique with some Papertrey stamps - oops! It gave me a chance to use my very old and very neglected Whisper pens. Not sure they're even sold anymore but they're all I used before Copics came along. They're all still working though so a good investment in my book. It's not a patch on Dawns Peonies but I feel pretty pleased with how it turned out so I think I'll try it with other stamps, colours etc. The challenges I'm entering this into are CASology Three and Just Us Girls Water Colour. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!
