Flowers and sunshine


Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week!

Inspired by the ColourQ colours and the theme at Less Is More - Hello Sunshine, I made my one layer card by inking the stamps with SU! markers and spritzing with water before stamping for a watercolour effect. It's a little bit unpredictable and you can get some interesting effects but be careful not to spray on too much water as it can make puddles on your card!

Not too much sunshine around today so photographing was a bit tricky. I used the flash but not convinced it's an OK photo.

Also linking up to Uniko Studio - Flowers and One Layer Simplicity Challenge - Blossom.

The unpredictability is one of the things I like about watercolour. You got some lovely effects with yours.
