I've been playing around with my watercolour paints to try and get better at using them.
In the past, I've always stamped the image with a dark ink as I did here but I've seen some stampers do images where they stamp in a very pale colour or even Versamark and then paint the image so that there is no outline.
So I decided to do two of the same card - one each way. This one has the image stamped in very pale grey so it scarcely shows. It gives the result of looking more like a freehand watercolour painting that a trained artist would be able to do (but I never could!). But I found it very fiddly to do and I don't think I like the results as much.

Both version are really lovely Susan ... but I love this one best ... it looks more like a true watercolor painting. I do miss growing Sweet Peas ... just not enough sun in our backyard any more. Their sweet smell is one of the memories of summer for me.
