My attempts at water coloring, most ended up in trash can. This was retrieved from trash as the more I tried the worse it got. I decided to die cut it, popped and mounted, stamped Thank you from SU Wonderful Words and called it O.K.
I think I need to take a class...you would be appalled if I told you how I did this, so I will keep the details to myself.

Now Peggy, you are way too critical on yourself... This is absolutely beautiful, it really captures the beauty of the watercolor technique. I really like the softness of the image, I can't believe that you were going to trash this beauty..... Love it... tfs

It cannot be any worse than the things I have tried...
and I am also leaning towards taking a class...
but, seriously the colors are fabulous.
I have also "cut out" some of mine in attempts to use the pieces.
this doily shape gives it such a delicate look.

No matter how you got there ... this is really beautiful. You did a wonderful job of watercoloring. I believe there is a steep learning curve for this medium ... at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it! I have taken the class and still can't seem to make anything that I'm completely happy with.
