Loose Watercolor Roses for a handmade card - beginner level for sure but oh, so much fun





Well, I'm not afraid to try new techniques for my card making passion. You can't fail or succeed without trying, right? I was inspired by some very talented watercolor artists so I jumped right in gave these loose watercolor roses a try. They are "perfectly imperfect" and I prefer that description since it is less inhibiting when trying a new medium. I combined the watercolor roses with a water colored and embossed book page for my background, then added my roses, some diecut berries/baby's breath and a sentiment. This was so much fun! If I can do it, so can you! Just think what can happen with a bit more practice. #papercraft #watercolorcards #watercolorbeginner
