I have been wanting to do “no line” watercoloring with our stamps for a long time, but just lacked a little courage to jump in and try it. This weekend I found that my demonstrator friend and watercolor artist, Leslie Watkins (Dandelion Cottage Design), had watercolored the same rose (from the So Much Love Stamp Set) that I was wanting to watercolor. So I watched her video AND gave it a try. Much to my surprise, I really liked the results. Thank you Leslie, for teaching this Watercoloring Wannabe how to step out of her comfort zone. If you would like to see how I made this card, just watch my video below.

Your painting came out beautifully! Great job! Good for you. I often advise my watercolor students to do the 1, 2 , 3 step method: Start very light, let it dry then come back and add your middle tones and finally your darks. That way you have plenty of time to make any adjustments. You ARE brave, lol xx Thanks for sharing.
