More Bloomin' Beautiful

More watercoloring...this time I used Shimmer paper cardstock, ink pads and blender pens. As always, start with the lightest color first. I used Barely Banana over everything, leaves and all. Blend in a circular motion. Next add More Mustard around the flower centers and blend out to the egde of the petal, cleaning the blender pen often so it doesn't get too dark. Be sure to leave white space white. Leaves are Mellow Moss and Old Olive. I picked up a little Pumpkin Pie (I wish :)) and touched it here and there to add additional color to the petals. I wanted the centers really dark so when it was completely dry, I used the Chocolate Chip marker.
