I actually took a close up to share, but when I looked at it in my photo program, I decided not to. Have you noticed that photos can show up mistakes that you haven't even noticed until you look at the picture? I think I need some lessons on photography as well as watercoloring! At least I have fun and that's the main thing isn't it!
I used the colors from the ColorQ #69 challenge
I went a little heavier to the Peach & Cajun than I intended. A lot of that is a control issue!
The Free 4 All challenge on SCS was to use warm colors and something fuzzy. These colors certainly are warm and I made some Peach Parfait faux flower soft to put in the center of the flower.
A little tip here. I stamped the image on shimmery white. When getting ready to mount the design to the card I realized that it is too dark for Whisper White and too light for Very Vanilla. Neither looked right. I had some of the stiff insert from my DSP that I had cut for card bases. I found that this was a good match for the Shimmery White. It's not shimmery but the shade of white is the same. I love it when I can use up those bits & pieces that hang around!

I need to get this into the challenges. Remember that Baroque Valentie a few days ago? By the time I got over to the challenge site, it had closed. Sniff, sniff.
