Watercoloring without Lines

This morning I was able to try out Heather's great technique of watercoloring without lines.  I had some special inspiration from my Grandma, who was a fabulous china painter.  I have some special pieces that she gave me, and a few that I got from my mom.  

This plate was done in 1962. I know, because she signed the back with her name, "Mattie".  She was the sweetest, lovable, woman ever.  She was also a great prayer warrior til she died in her mid 90's.  My dad inherited her artistic talent, I think I got a smidgen, and my middle son is talented too.

So here is my card...

I think is looks better the farther you get away, as watercoloring looses a little detail of this great stamp.

So there you have it!  Thanks for taking a look!
