Freehand watercolour roses by Rachel Vass

Hey everyone,

Today’s card really pushed me outside of my comfort zone. I watercoloured some roses freehand in pretty pink tones using my gansai tambi paints.

Once dried I used the pretty scallop rectangle  by Winnie and Walter which really helped to smooth out some of the warping on the watercolour paper. The sentiment is one of my go to  happy anniversary sentiments by Mama Elephant.   I had an accident with my enamel dots (oops) so had to add loads to cover up and try and make the piece look balanced.
