I tried to do the shading of the violets in the center differently. With the brown card, I used water color pencils and took the colors straight from the pencil with a water brush. With the lime green card, I used water color pencils and shaded straight on the cardstock, then I used a stump pen with odorless paint thinner to make sure that none of the lines and strokes from the colored pencils would be visible. All in all, I kinda prefer the colored pencils with ordorless paint thinner look much better.
ps. Oh! And welcome to new followers! Thanks ladies! I hope you enjoy the cards that I make! :)
