This card was an experiment. It was also for my daughter to go with her cake. I have had Sheena Douglass's Aquatints for a while, and really hadn't played with them in earnest. So this was a first attempt at using the Pebeo drawing gum (which is a water based masking fluid - and is MAGIC!)
I couldn't find my water colour card - so this was done on ordinary heavyweight white card. I stamped the flower image and leaves (one of Sheena's sets) and painted on the drawing gum.
I then painted the background using blue mixed with silver and green mixed with gold from the aquatints. I then rubbed off the masking liquid, and painted the flower and leaves. on the flower I painted the edge and then dragged the colour into the petals, and blotted it for a bit of faux bleaching. The leaves got painted with various depths of the green and a bit of the red I used for the flower. Finally I sprinkled some drops of water over the card and blotted them for some more faux bleaching effect.
Mounted on a matching piece of pink card and a stick on greeting added.
Quite pleased with this for my first attempt, and my daughter got a "real" card for a change instead of one designed in CAP!
