Watercolor Posies


I pulled out some watercolor paper today and tried my hand at watercoloring again. I bought one of those aquapainters by EK Success (I think), but I couldn't get the darn thing loaded with water. I tried and tried, and only got a couple of drips in it. So it's going back tomorrow! I went back to the paint brush and cup of water! This set is Posies for You by Anna Wight. I used reinkers and the lids of the SU ink pads. I've been doing that pail in blue everytime because I have a pail that I use as a flower pot and it looks just like this! The sketch is based on Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch #24. I flipped the sketch vertically because that's the way my image went and I just added two larger brads in place of the strip of dots in the original sketch. I'm not too sure about this card. It's sort of growing on me. Remember, I was just playing around today! Thanks for stopping by!
