White flower gone sooo wrong

Hello friends, I am sharing another coloring here today.

This flower has gone sooooo wrong!

I illustrated the flower myself.
I aimed to color white Hibiscus, I knew I was over ambitious but had to give it a go.
When I started coloring I didn't see how heavily I had put the first layer of watercolors😑, in my defense I would say I was sitting by the desk with the artificial lights overhead. I usually sit by the huge window in natural light.

Anyways as the coloring was progressing, by the first petal itself I knew it was not gonna come out to my liking.
After finishing, the coloring was sooooo bad that tit actually was hurting my eyes and head 😂

So I decided to smudge the colors and change the flower from white to intense red!

It has come out quite good in this color.

To put together the card, I fussy cut the flower.
I added some score lines to the front panel, and then used the Tree rings stencil with a light hand, and added the flower and leaves over the stenciled design.
The sentiment is from SSS, and the smaller part is edged with a gold strip, as usual a few jewels to finish off.

I hope you it!

  2. Ashwini has the right idea. When sometime goes in a direction you don't like, change direction. Your result is perfect. Celebrate that! Thanks for playing with us at Time Out.
