Watercolour flowers

I wanted to work on my watercolouring so pulled out an Altnew stamp I've had for ages but haven't gotten around to using.  I used Distress Oxide spritzed on my craft sheet for my background  and then stamped the flower images over the splattered background.  I then stamped the flowers on some hot press watercolour paper coloured them with my zigs and fussy cut them out.  I used my embossing tool to go around the edges to give them a little bit of curved edge and making them a little more 3D.
I haven't decided on a sentiment yet, I'll add that later when I know what I want to use it for.


I'm entering this for the CAS Watercolour challenge April Green and Pink and The heart Desires April challenge "Spring"
