Watercolour Waterlily

The final card I started on Saturday with the Brushos... I decided to stamp the Inspired by Stamping Waterlily image and emboss it with pearl gold before I coloured it with the Brushos.  To achieve this you first paint the are you are working on (eg the petals) with water and then sprinkle a few grains of Brushos pigment of and watch it spread...I moved the colour about with a water loaded need to be patient and make sure the painted area is dry before you continue. To finish I 'swam' in some blue to create the watery background.  I am posting to Tuesday Throwdown #266 - Watercolor and to Virginia's View #19 - All Things Coloured.  Thanks for taking a peek
