Floral Watercolour Mother’s Day Card

Tuesday the 26th of May was Mother’s Day in Poland. Ever since I discovered the joy of quilling, every card I ever made used that technique. Recently however, I’ve been feeling adventurous with painting and decided to make a card with watercolours. I didn’t go too crazy with the picture, I thought keeping it simple would be the best idea giving my  watercolours experience (or the lack of it, ha!).

Regardless, I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I have never spent much time painting, I’ve always considered paints one of the trickiest mediums to work with and greatly respected everyone who mastered it. Nonetheless, I do enjoy working with paints, it turns out – I just need some more practice  for sure.
