Lots to do - Watercolour

Lots to do this week is all about watercolour. So many directions to go with this one, take a look at all the different ideas folks have come up with for it.

Its my cousins birthday in a week, its OK she does not even know I have a blog so can share this with you all first.

Ripped a piece of watercolour paper to roughly A6 size, stamped it with a little clare image in Lightening black as well as an old butterfly,fixed both with a heat gun. Scribbled a blue sky and some green grass, more carefully added yellow, orange and red to the flowers and butterfly moved the pigment into place with a waterbrush.

A sheet of 'in my minds eye' provided the backing paper and the flower embelishments on the sentiment. Sentiment heat embossed in orange. Hope she likes it.
