I am not known for my watercolouring skill. Let's leave it at that. Heather made a gorgeous card for this week's MIM over at Nichole Heady's blog, and it looked so effortless in the video.
I tried several times, and then some more again, and finally came up with this. I'm posting it; I don't care that it's not very nice; it's a challenge and it certainly was one. I can't believe the gorgeous cards that I've just looked at in the gallery. Each one is amazing and so full of personality. And then there is this ...
Unlike Heather who wanted her watercolouring to be the focal point of her card, I chose to mat my miniature painting on patterned paper. I think the water got away from me. But I did have fun and that's what counts for me.
