Lily reflections

I've been honoured this month by being asked to join The  Crazy Challenge as a guest designer.

The theme they have for this first one I'm taking part in is Watercolour.  So I decided I needed to get the old water colour pencils out and get to work.  As well as being done in water colours I decided to do some water and had a go at doing some reflections :)

I tried a new technique when I was doing this which didn't work out too well.  I masked the image with some masking fluid.  Unfortunately when I'd finished the back ground and removed the masking fluid it pulled off most of the image so I had to kind of make it up as I went along.

Anyway..... The image I've used is from Make It Crafty called Lotus Bloom bit they do look rather like lily pads we have here in the UK.

The watercolour pencils I used were Faber Castelle.

Once I'd finished and dried the image I mounted it onto some plain black card stock and added some black self adhesive gems.

So that's it for my inspiration - pop over to the main Crazy Challenge blog to enter

Hi Hazel, it's a digi stamp from Make It Crafty. If you click where I've got lotus blossom in the text above it should take you straight there x
