The burst of water colored cards in my feedly inspired me to take out my supplies, and this was the result. I'd forgotten how much fun, and how frustrating at times, water coloring can be (this is the second attempt).
Using Tombow markers on watercolor paper is a great way to get bright colors -- the markers just melt when I add water. It can be mesmerizing! Apply the marker to dry watercolor paper and watch the magic! SU markers do not melt with water the way Tombow markers do.
I love this huge flower, which was drawn by Claudine Hellmuth. Unfortunately, she is no longer designing stamps. I love her hand drawn, loose, designs and will miss them. I treated this one like it was almost the sun.
And now the gloriously sunny weekend is over and time to return to work. Hope your week is a good one.
