Watercolouring is so relaxing.....

Hello again peeps!

I spent a happy hour (or two!) last night watercolouring this card....


I used Neocolor II crayons to colour the flowers, which are from a Stampin' Up set called Fifth Avenue Florals.  The background is my favourite watercolour and salt technique.  I nearly cut the top off this card, but I really liked how the paint had 'bloomed' at the top, so I kept it on!  I hope you like it....

Thanks again to all my visitors and new followers, hugs for you lovely people who leave me comments too! xxxxxx
