Hello Magnolia using watercolours.

I am away at the moment and using phone data to post this card.
Had to share this beautiful card. I stamped on Multimedia paper then 
watercoloured. No Wink of Stella on this card as the white I used I mixed with
The shimmer white paint and it is very strong. As you will see in the
close up.

I was doing this for the upcoming Flower Challenge then as I was adding it
to the Challenge with the other DT's I realised I had gone with
the wrong sentiment. No way to fix it as I said we are away. I can paint but
no other supplies.

Bit heavy handed with the silver  paint in the white mix but it only shows
like this when held in the light.

Here it looks fine. I added black to the red to get this deeper 
red look. A very watery mix for the pale green background.  A strip of
silver washi tape, a silver 'hello' and a few scattered silver dots
and its finished. I love how it looks with that soft green wash.


Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
