Watercolouring with inkpad lids

My stamp club wanted to do a project using watercolouring techniques and this set is just the perfect one. I know it's a fall image, but I love this set so much! It's going to retire so I wanted to feature it before it's no longer available. This apple bucket is one of my all-time favourite images. It can be coloured in many ways and it's just so pretty.

For this card, I showed them how to use a blender pen and inkpad lids to get this look. We used a few different colours to layer up the colour, which also adds interest. The apple in front of the bucket is popped up.

Thanks for looking!
