Lawnscaping 105 - Watercolour

The challenge this week over at Lawnscaping is watercolour. I. Struggle. With. Watercolor! These challenges are very good for me to practice with mediums that I may not turn to automatically.  I used a mix of Gansai Kuretake watercolour paints (flowers) and the new distress Mermaid Lagoon (background).  

Products used:

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows (sunflowers) and Hello Sunshine for the sentiment
PPP Sequins
Gansai Kuretake watercolour paints
Distress Mermaid Lagoon ink pad
versafine Onyx Black ink
White gel pen
Copic C3 for shading
PostIt for masking

Thanks for taking the time!
