Christmas Flower for CAS Watercolour

Hello friends,  I'm glad you stopped by!

It's time for CAS Watercolour

A while back my friend, Peggy lent me her Botanical Frames stamp set.

I stamped it and colored it with Zigs and a water brush.

I loved the results!

This month's CAS Watercolour challenge is hosted by Susan.

I love adding florals or greenery to Christmas cards!

I've stamped this image with Versafine Onyx Black ink,
colored a bit of each petal and leaf with my Zig Real Brush Watercolor Markers
and touched with a damp waterbrush to make the color flow.

Coloring petals that are not next to each other really helps to keep
everything from running together.

I finished it off with a few white splatters.

Now it's your turn.

I hope you'll join us at CAS Watercolour.

I see that the Jingle Belles challenge is
Mele Kalikimaka
or Anything Flowers.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

That a beautiful image borrowed from your friend. The bright zig watercolouring really bring this to life Bonnie. Lots of contrast with the bright red and green and wonderful shading to give the petals and leaves lots of dimension. xx
