Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Release

Altenew Build-A-Flower Sweet Violet | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi there everyone!
Welcome to Build-A-Flower Sweet Violet Release!
You must be here from the Altenew Card Blog.

Altenew Build-A-Flower Sweet Violet | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I have a messy watercolour card to share with you today. I used Watercolour Brush Markers to colour the images today.
The colours I used for the flower were Purple Wine, Persian Blue, and Turquoise Watercolour brush markers.
For the leaves, I used Limeade, Lime and Emerald brush markers.
For my background, I used the 36 pan watercolour set by matching the colours of the flowers.
