Spring Flowers Watercolour Card

Today in my workshop I tried my hand at a bit of water colour painting using watercolour pencils and an aquabrush.. I’m not much of a hand a drawing, but quite like this little 2 x 2″ piece 🙂

There is not much else on this card apart from watercolour paper and a small layer of light moss green bazzill textured cardstock.

I used the same watercolour paper for my card base as I did for the mini painting 🙂

Just a plain wee card for nice and clean simple look
