Hi It's Your Birthday

While I still had all of my markers rolling around on my coloring table I thought I would have a go at the beautiful Papertrey Ink tulips.  I made quite a mess on this card as I was watercoloring...odd splotches of paint all over.  I went over the splotches with a wet paintbrush and just kept a damp white cotton towel hand to wipe away run-a-way paint.  I know it's supposed to be more freeing to watercolor but as you can see not too much out of the lines for me.  I will have to work on that ;)  One thing that has helped me when I'm watercoloring is to keep my Ranger heat tool right next to me when I'm working.
Drying the painting once in awhile lets me see more accurately what the color is doing.
