Watercolor and bleaching with Help Me Grown

I love, love, love to watercolor! Watercolor is just so forgiving. You really cannot mess it up. I used watercolor paper, Soft Suede ink and aqua painter to create the background. Once it dried, I stamped the image from Help Me Grow using brown Stazon. Note: always use Stazon ink when water coloring. Trust me on that one.
I then dipped the aqua painter in more Soft Suede ink and added additional ink to the flowers and the stem. Now comes the fun part - bleaching!! I dipped the aqua painter in bleach and carefully bleached the tips of the flower petals. Next time around, I will make the background just a little more darker so the bleached parts of the flower will pop out more. Enjoy!
