Watercoloured cone flowers.

Hi everyone, I was delighted when Kylie asked me to play along as a guest designer at Happy Little Stampers after winning the  June watercolour challenge. 
There are so many ways to play along whether it be paints, powders, or as in this case pencils.

The theme for this month is anything goes watercolour with the option of flowers.

I stamped these flowers in versafine smokey grey, fussy cut them, and coloured them with Inktense pencils and a water brush.
The sentiment is from the HLS doodled flowers set. I love the fonts on these stamps, and they are a great size.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
