This big flower is made from 140lb weight watercolor paper. This was somewhat of a science project. I put the flower in a mixture of water with blue food coloring. This didn't do much so I added alcohol. This did absorb the liquid much better, but I still wanted to experiment so I added some blue Pearl Ex pigment. I swirled the flower around in this mixture for a bit then let soak. While this flower was drying I formed the shape. I ran out of the blue pearls, so I used my copic pen to color more. I got this idea from a poster here.
Oh yeah, this flower is made using the Big scalloped circle from Spellbinders.
