Countryside watercolour


Hi everyone.
 Ages ago I bought a set of watercolour discs to play with. I'd seen all of the fabulous creations and techniques people had been posting, and thought it looked like a lot of fun.

This is one of my first plays with them. The stamp is a new one I bought from Serendipity Stamps.
The watercolours are Koh i noor, a set of 24 discs. (I thought these would be good to start with as they were very inexpensive but had reasonable reviews.)

It was definitely lots of fun, and now I just need to do some classes on the techniques and get lots of practice!!

I'm linking up to a couple of challenges.

The theme at Serendipity Stamps is Hidden Gems, to use something that you've been neglecting in 
your stash. My watercolour discs fit that!
.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is it's a guy thing.

At Happy Little Stampers it's a watercolouring theme.


Supplies:
Serendipity Stamps winter fenceline; koh i noor paints; watercolour paper; verafine ink; sentiment sticker.


Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

For a first time, you really nailed this. Your shading is fantastic and makes the scene come alive. Great job.My first time watercoloring was done with a kids set of watercolor paints and they did just fine. I found that I loved to watercolor. It is different each time.

A lovely card! That water coloring stuff always frustrates me so I'm extra impressed when people can pull it off like you've done here.
