Make It Monday Watercolor

Today's Make It Monday challenge was to use watercolor technique over a sketchy outline to create a true watercolor effect.  Perfect opportunity to experiment with this linen canvas made for watercolor mediums (manufactured by Fredrix).  I got the idea to look for something like this when I took a watercolor for card-making class last spring.  It's so cool to play with the linen texture, and this stuff will stand up to watercolor beautifully!  

Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream and New Leaf cardstock
Linen Canvas: Fredrix
Stamps: PTI Botanical Blocks II and Banner Sentiments
Color Medium: watercolor


  1. A real beauty, Polly! Love the striking red/pink against the green. Lovely the way you staged your watercolor too!

  2. That is so pretty! I am seeing so many (more) stamps that I am now going to have to get!

  3. Oh, this is gorgeous!! You've done a beautifully watercoloured flower!! (I can't wait for my Botanical Blocks ll to arrive!)
