Mix It Up - Open Technique

Hi friends - welcome to the super fun Mix It Up challenge of Open Technique - use ANY technique you love to do!

I am not great at water coloring, but I keep trying! It's a technique I love seeing others do so inspiration is endless. That's the technique I wanted to try this month AND I used colors I never use. EEEeekkkk!!! But it turned out better than I anticipated. LOL

The large flower and leaves were previously water colored and I added some details with a sharpie; I then colored the small bud to match. Orange is not my gig, but I had this polka dot patterned paper so it just fell together after that. I cut the frame (Die Cuts and More) and then adhered it with dimension, added the floral bouquet in the bottom corner flat with a few pieces of foam adhesive under the leaves. And I love mixing colors of leaves, that's one of my favorite things!

I don't have the matching dies, so I fussy cut the images.

Hope you'll take the time to join us this month at Mix It Up and show us YOUR favorite technique!
