Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms Watercolouring

I love watercolouring!! I love it a LOT - it makes me feel so very artistic!!  
And Birthday Blooms is the PERFECT set to have fun watercolouring.  
I tried something new this time with my watercolouring - I totally saturated the watercolour paper first, and then watercoloured the image as usual.  Because of the water already on the paper, this made the colour run and move around - giving the image a misty blurry effect which looks ever so artistic I think!!  

This week Paper Players have an awesome watercolouring challenge - I had to join in the fun !!  If you click on the graphic, you'll see the fantastic projects and inspiration from the design team!!

And because I was having such a grand time watercolouring - I've made 2 cards!!  This one has a traditional orientation and some gold thread wrapped around the image.
