Very pretty. I love the design of the flowers and leaves.

Here is the inspiration from noblerubies and the explanatin for the watercolor wash is: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=25188&sort=1&cat=last1&page=1
Hers is sooo much more lovely, but I did try a number of things in common. What you cannot see in the scan is that after a light yello watercolor wash in the lower left corner,I stamp botanical script in versamark and used clear embossing powder. Some of the series tonight have this more visible than others.
While SU papers are okay for watercoloring, I do find watercolor paper more amenable to a watercolor wash. In most my samples last night I did use our SU watercolor pencils, but my new love (due to the diversity of color - 160 different ones available!) is Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils. They are very nice - but expensive - let me know if you want info about them Thanks again for all your kind words - now go recognize the real artist, noble rubies!
