Primary Colors Sketched Flowers Amazing Card

I look at colors different since taking the Online Card Class Introduction to Color Theory.  I understand how to create my own colors from just the three primary colors and how to make different color tints and shades.  It has been a complete eye opener in how I watercolor images.  This card uses the three primary colors with different blends and tints.

So many beautiful shade from three tubes of watercolors, Cerulean Blue, Chromium,  and Quinacridone Rose.  Lunar Black was also used to darken the violet shade.

I stamped the image using VersaMark Ink onto Strathmore 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper and heat set it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  To color the flowers I wet each petal with clear water and then dropped the concentrated colors to the base of each petal and then pull the color to the tip by adding more clear water at the tip and letting the colors move on their own.
