Eclipse Watercolour with Rose Wonder

Hello everybody, I hope you are having an amazing day! I'm here today with the monthly Enjoy the Little Things in Life Video hop! Our theme this month is all about "retiring colours and stamp sets" and I can't wait to see what the rest of the team has to share with us today.

My project today features the Rose Wonder Stamp set and coordinating Rose Garden thinlets, retiring May 31st, but you could use this technique with many, many other stamp sets.

I think the hardest thing for me with watercolouring is that it's not precise and you need to "let the water do the work". No two projects would ever be the same, but that is just part of the charm of beautiful watercolours. This can be soooooo hard for me, I am into detail and balance and precision, but I love the gentle blending effect of watercolours - so don't be afraid give it a try, and remember that saying "practice makes perfect" or at least "practice and enjoy" as you become comfortable with watercolouring.  Here's my tutorial on creating this watercolour image
