Water-colour sunflower

Hi there. I have a card to share with you using a clean and simple design and layout, and also using my Altenew water-colours.

I stamped and heat embossed the flower outline, then took yellow first and sketchy water-coloured the petals, then added a darker yellow once dry, another orange, then the lighter yellow again.

I am exploring all different techniques with water-colouring, and find I like this flicking and sketchy look when doing flowers. I even like this look when using the Altenew Artist Markers too. I coloured the centre is a couple of the brown/dark grey colours, and added the black artist marker dots after it was all dry.

I did think about fussy-cutting the flower out, but instead went for the MFT wonky squares

The sentiment is from a stamp set from paper Artsy.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
