Watercolor Thanks


Hi, playing along (again!) with Cas Watercolour Challenge.


Bonnie and Loll have given us the theme, 'Autumn', 
for the month of October.
Sunflowers are in full bloom everywhere right now, 
gorgeous reminders of fall sunshine. I chose the lined drawn sunflower
 from PTI's Botanical Blocks.


Sharing a couple of techniques with you.
First, to color onto dark card stock: painted on bleach 
within the embossed image,
When dry, watercolored with Zig pens.
Background dry embossed with PTI's Bloom Builder's die.
Then spritzed with water, and colored randomly with watercolors.
Flicked Terracotta Tile and Ripe Avocado Inks, (PTI), after the 
background was dry.
Thanks from Swoosh dies.
