Watercolor-Black & White Remake

So, I decided to retry making a pre-class watercolor. I am much happier with the result.

The two changes I made were using black embossing powder and Koi Watercolor Pocket Field Sketch Box.

Here's the result, followed by the before picture.


Pre-Class Watercolor

Just posting some pre-class watercolor pictures. Very happy I'm taking the Watercolor for Card Makers-Exploring Mediums class. You'll see what I mean after seeing the before and afters!

Here, I made the mistake of using memento black for stamping the flowers. This is a watercolor soluble ink that bleed giving a purplish color. I was looking for black and white.
