Hand painted floral square

I’ve been doing a bit more watercolour painting. When I started this one I didn’t intend to make all the elements so teeny tiny; it took a while to fill the square. I started by taping a square frame on a folded piece of cold pressed watercolour paper to make a one layer card.

I used my Sennelier watercolour paints and as you can imagine a fairly small round watercolour brush to fill the square with flowers and foliage. I kept the colour palette limited and added a few shimmer highlights at the end with some coliro pearlescent paint.

Peeling the tape off the paper to reveal a clean straight edge was very satisfying then I finished it off with a PB sentiment stamped on a co-ordinating green cardstock.

    Lovely, but was this the right stamp set? Or am I just not imaginative enough?

    What a gorgeous array of prettily watercoloured flowers Heather, and at first glance thought you had stamped all the little leaves and flowers, but all your own work…fabulous! A lovely sentiment to finish too. x

    Absolutely beautiful Heather. Oh to have the talent to paint so pretty a picture from within and the masked off edge is a wonderful frame.

      Thank you, Hilary, I am planning to continue doing my own watercolour so I hope to keep sharing them here. I’ve got a vegetable design floating around in my head to try soon.
