I am trying to practice my water colouring skills and after seeing this amazing card over at the very talented Debby's blog I was inspired.  My water colour palette is very small and only has limited colours so I used my Zig markers,  brushing them onto my acrylic block and using water and a paint brush.

I stamped with Frayed Burlap Distress ink onto water colouring paper and painted using Debby's flower as a guide for shadows.  I then fussy cut adding another flower from a Altenew set and layered up onto some patterned paper.

I then added a gold die cut sentiment from Simon Says.

Definitely more practice needed but it was fun and very therapeutic.

I shall add this card to the current Simon Says Flickr challenge "Anything Goes" and their Instagram challenge "Birthdays".

Wow! Love this.
Your water colouring is far superior to mine and looks great.
Love the watercolour paper you have used.
