I love to use watercolours to colour stamped images. The more you can influence the end result the better the individuality I think! I do have some ready made toppers in my craft stash but for some reason I always find them harder to craft with. Perhaps in my mind I don't see "assembly" of ready made items in the same way as I see "messing about from scratch"! LOL! Everyone finds their own way in crafting and that's what's so great about it!
I do wish I was truly "artistic" but I think that would only be achieved with lots of time and patience (if ever!) and certainly not with a full time job, busy family life and lots of socialising!
So for the moment, I just "tinker".. and today's "tinkering" involves some freehand water colouring. Some little floral notelets. These are actually great fun to make! I've got so many different types of water colours I just used them randomly.
I'm looking forward to more time to practice!
Hope you like these beginner attempts!
Have a lovely day!
