Watercoloured Flowers

 Hi again:
Its new challenge time at the Technique Time Tuesday blog! July's technique is called 'Blurred Vision Water Colouring' and as always, the fabulous Mynnette has an awesome tutorial on the blog for you. One thing I learned while making my card is if you are using CTMH inks, you must work VERY fast!!

Here is the card I made:
