Watercolor Flowers



***UPDATED WITH SECOND PICTURE***
For some reason I can't get the post to save with the picture anywhere else but at the very top. So I guess that's where it's going.

After seeing so many beautiful watercolor flowers, I just had to give it a try myself. There are many different blogs with this idea and I'm not sure who I first learned it from, but here is a good place for a tutorial (this is just one spot I remembered off the top of my head and I'm sorry if you also have a tutorial and I didn't mention it, but you can always leave it in a comment). Anyways, of course I don't have the exact supplies needed to I did a little experimenting. I tried glossy white cardstock and the watercolor paper. I'm not sure what I like better...you can see for yourself. I did a couple of things wrong that resulted in cards that I'm not too trilled about but lessons learned and I will have to give it another try. Thanks for looking. The first one is with the watercolor paper and the second is with the glossy paper

Love your rose, and the card. I don't think I would worry about who posted a tutorial, I think there are like 100 of them out there right now, LOL, just enjoy creating and be thankful that people share.

The watercolor paper rose is stunning. I've not tried using that paper - now I will.

You might be happier with results using the Shimmery paper rather than the gloss. The water floating seems to work the best on that one.

Either way two lovely examples of this WoW techinique - Jean
