Loose water coloring

I did not intend to post back to back but somehow going ahead with it!  I watched a video by Kelly Latevola on loose water coloring and I was totally inspired by the card she made. Her card is incredible and will blow your mind. I had to try it, the results are not as fantastic as hers but I totally loved the process of being a little messy and playing with water colors, adding layers and have fun! The only tough part was waiting for the colors to dry, as I do not have a heating tool, I had to be very patient with letting the colors dry before going for another layer.

I like the way colors just flow out of the image. Added some details using white and black gel pen also created a shadow using the grey water color pencil. For the coloring I have used DI.
Stamps and sentiment are from Mudra Wild rose and Beautiful butterflies.

I would definitely recommend to try this and have fun!
