Upside down or downside up?

Can you guess the flowers?
Lillies? No! They are snowdrops!! Deepti had gifted me this stamp set designed by her (very) long ago and I was feeling guilty for not putting it to use. When I saw it last week I was determined to use it and started stamping at once on a small watercolor paper piece.

Only when I searched them for coloring reference on internet I realized that I had stamped them upside down! I didn’t want to
discard it so thought of coloring them as a trial.
Another supply from my stash that has been neglected for long, the connector coloring pens. Gifted by Vijaylakshmi , more than a year ago and I had no idea till date that I can water color with them !They are so easy to use on watercolor paper, so vibrant and come in a set of 24.I colored the background first as the flowers were going to be white. I could also create texture in the bg with water droplets.

Now that I knew the snowdrops are upside down I made another card with correct version .

For both the cards I made the background on card base by applying mixture of gloss gel and rainbow glitter through stencils.

Which one do you like more ?
