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 ?

Supplies used:
Just because stamp set (Stamplorations),doodled bloom(Jane's doodles)
Rain drops Stencil (Craft Tangles)
Tribal Swirls Stencil (Artplorations)
Sakura Gloss gel
Rainbow Glitter (Dress My Craft)
Faber Castle connector color pens

  1. This is awesome , love both the versions of your creation and the colour combinations !!

  2. Actually, I did think they looked like snowdrops - more like - I thought they looked like a familiar flower. Then, as you mentioned upside down snowdrops, it clicked! But they do look wonderful in your watercolors! Actually wondering why they are always looking down in nature - such pretty flowers too! So, maybe this is a lucky chance for the flowers to look up too!! :D Awesome watercoloring Pooja!
