I was truly inspired by another blogger and her beautiful colouring technique using Copics and coloured pencils. Marika Rahtu has some fabulous videos showing how she colours her gorgeous flowers, be sure to check it out here.
I absolutely love this method of no line colouring and am very excited about doing more of it. For my first attempt I am extremely happy with it, although I had a little oops at the end and got black ink on the lower right petals. My sentiment covers most of it - I had put far too much time into this not to use it. I guess the ink thing frazzled me a bit because I had intended to pop the flower up after fussy cutting and instead just glued it straight down to my watercolour card base.
I was unhappy with the colouring of the flower center, so I stamped over it with black Versafine ink. I then added my sentiment and raindrops.
