Spring Plaid

I have seen the watercoloured plaid technique done in the past and wanted to give it a go for this spring card.  Clearly I need more practice. I used my Winsor Newton watercolours to mix the lighter colours and away I went. One would think that keeping a line relatively straight should be easy on a small card ... not so easy, at least for me. I heat dried the lines as I went in order not to have any bleeding, and once I completed the plaid I then added Wink of Stella gold pen. I then stamped the shadowed sentiment. The shadow appears darker in the picture than it actually is. I added the butterflies and a few sequins to finish. Thanks for having a look today.
