Deer & Butterfly Watercolor

Hi Bloggers-
I am learning about Watercolor Techniques at Watercolor 101 Blog. Today I learned about taping down the watercolor paper - creating the background - letting it DRY completely - and then having a nice border around the background.  I really like this technique - it was easy to do - except that I did not get the outside lines as even as they needed to be - but that is OK - it is ART! Right? Thanks for stopping by!


HERE is how I started
Finished product
I am having a difficult time getting a nice white background - if I get the white background the colors are too dark - the color of my card a bit darker shade than shown in this photo - maybe tomorrow I can get a better shot of this background - which I love so much - it was fun doing this technique -
 thanks for stopping by.
