Watercolouring – a steep learning curve

An experiment with mixed media:

This card incorporates some gilding, some ink doodling Simon's card 2018

and a simple watercolour background. I also added some masking for interest.  Flushed with success (I liked the result) from this attempt, I made the following card.

Watercolour card 2

For this card I used a stamp from Carabelle Studios, the background is water coloured first, then stamped and doodled with a Microperm pen 01.  I added some coloured pencil highlights here and there.

I am really enjoying experimenting with mixed media like this.  Perhaps something a little more adventurous next time.
