So, there is a bit of a story. that water holder in the back ( the brown one) with the brush rests, it was made for me by one of the ladies I know in real life who is a potter... and I wanted so bad to make these flowers work for a thank you note but, seriously I have too much paint on the brush I think its going to take more than 4 days to figure this one out. so, I tried a few in colors that were just left over on the pallet but, the bulk of these "Xray" colored ones are done with QoR paynes gray. ( I have ordered some Daniel Smith kind in case it is better, the other sets I have do not have this color, I can get some blue tint on the palette but, it seems to be kinda blah on this paper when dry. ) This is about 4 nights after work attempts before I decided this was enough was enough and I made her a card with one of the lavender tutorial ones that was the tutorial a while back that at the time I had just set aside. Thanks for this challenge Linda & tfl. (oh, and the ones in the spiral book of sheets are on the back side of something else maybe flower or leaf practice so, maybe that makes a difference too) who knows, I figure I will get this eventually.

Stacy, I think you've got it. The bottom two sheets look great. Can't see the other one well enough to tell. I see a lot of transparency in the blooms....just what we were looking for in the challenge. I think you could make a wonderful card now.

Stacy, I think you have this technique down to a fine art! There is a lovely consistency in the size and shape of those petals and I really like how incredibly sheer the Payne's gray appears. My favorite bloom of all is the center flower on the lower left hand panel . . . . I'd figure out a way to salvage that and use it on a card, for sure!
