Wow, lets chat about this technique from the Watercolor For Cardmakers Class, Swarup Murthy taught this lesson, and boy what a lesson it was. I am semi pleased with the results. Would for sure skip the enamel dots when I attempt this again. But this lady makes it look ever so easy, and lets be honest, this was one of the most challenging lessons I had run into in this class. I will attempt it again, hopefully this weekend so be on the lookout for that.
There is a closer shot of the flower the lines you are seeing in the flowers are not the stamped line, they are actually dropped in with watercolour. I use a Windsor and Newton, compact Cotman watercolor pallet, on Canson 140lbs coldpress watercolour paper. The sentiment is from one of me flower sets from whimsy stamps, I believe it is on the Hibiscus and Lily set, but will have to check for sure.
Thanks for stopping by

Looks great and it is always good to learn something new.
The technique may have been hard, but SO worth it! Ya did good!!
You are right, Jess. This is not an easy one. But your attempt looks very good and at least you know what areas to “fix”. Very nice!
Jess, I agree with you!! This lesson wasn’t easy for me either but your flowers look great!! I think that is just it, water coloring isn’t meant to be perfect!!! Great job!
