Today's challenge is a technique called Misted Watercolor - the tutorial is found here. https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/r...tedwatercolor/
Execution is actually fairly simple - the hard part for an OCD person like me is letting go mentally and emotionally long enough to allow myself to "color outside the lines"! When all is said and done . . . and dried . . . I am actually quite pleased with how this turned out.
Can't decide how to rate the difficulty of this project so emotionally a 5 but actual painting a 2

I love your honestly. One week we are letting the water do everything, and now we were to add extra detail. You nailed the technique. Lovely soft background with your misting. You added terrific detail to the blooms with the shading and highlighting. It is a gorgeous card. TFS
Oh, your atmospheric paint flow is fabulous! It IS hard to color outside the lines. So, much so, that I think I sort of forgot that part! haha. I kept misting and misting. I am going to create another today, we shall see if I do better with coloring outside the lines! Your painting is a stunner! The flowers are gorgeous and I really like the extra pop the white paint centers give! Beautiful!

I'm laughing at the emotional value of 5....oh I hear you loud and clear. Sometimes it's just how much time one spends on something. I think I was always meant to color outside the lines, just needed to give myself permission. Your creation is beyond beautiful, it is stunning. So much depth.
