I'm playing along with the current Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge - here's the inspiration:
I used the centre portion to inspire my washed background and black sentiment and then added a flower to pick up on all the florals in the photos.
I'm still getting used to the watercolours - I found it difficult to get the two colours to really fade out towards the centre. The flower was fun, though - it's about 4 different layers of different reds and purples and I love the variation in colour this technique gives.
