Watercolor Hibiscus

Hello crafty friends,
Hope you are doing good and crafting a lot :)

Lately, I have been sharing very few cards even though there are so many lovely challenges in which I wish to participate. Somehow I am managing to miss the timelines ! There are couple of challenges for which I wanted to make a card, so I made sure I sit through making the card and share it asap.

Here it goes

There are many accidents with this card! First of all, I did not have this result in mind when I started. Even the flower color is not the one I had intended to do. I had started with a lighter shade and wanted to give a little messy look with the loose watercolor at the background, but in my over enthusiasm in adding layers of watercolor and contrast to flower I ended up with darker shade of flower with very definite shape. Nevertheless it is not something that I totally disliked, so went ahead and completed it. Added the leaves using freehand and some detail to flower using white gel pen.

The flower is from Mudra hibiscus and sentiment from Inspired By Stamping. I have used DI to watercolor.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear your kind feedback. Have a great day ahead!
