No-Water Watercolor Wonders

After watching this video from Jennifer McGuire I simply had to get my Watercolor Wonders set out and play. Using a colorless blender really does make the flowers look more water-colored without the fuss of adding water:)
I chose the color palette from  Pinterest Inspired Challenge #1 and used  Freshly Made Sketches #200 for the design. Only I turned it on a diagonal.
I'm simply tickled with the finished card!

The color variations are Scrumptious, without ANY pilling! Over working with water is a problem for me.  So this No-water technique is a tear saver:))
I encourage you to give it a try!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!


Thanks for the votes!!

  12. LauraJane, when I saw Jennifer's video I thought of you. I so could see you enjoying doing that, I really enjoyed watching the technique too, yet had not had a chance to try it out. Since I'm wearing my "official" duty hat tonight, I now officially thank you for joining us at the Altenew monthly challenge. It is always a pleasure to see your work (and that is said without my hat on) :)


Simply splendid to hear from you!
