My First Water colouring

Hi people..

Glad to be trying some new stuff. Here is my first try on water colouring. Loved doing it. I got some Mudra Stamps recently and i have been colouring like crazy.

For my first try here, i heat embossed it in gold and then coloured the image with DI (worn lipstick and peeled paint). Then fussy cut it and mounted on card base. some glossy accents for the dews. Sentiment is again heat embossed in gold on vellum.

The card looks grand and glittery IRL. I gifted this to a friend for their house-warming (yeah, another).

Next i wanted to try colouring it without embossing, and here it is

I liked this a little better than the previous one, it has more scope for shading and differentiating the colours. Here i have used worn lipstick and candid apple for the flowers. Same layout again.. 

Next i tried no line colouring. Am soo new to this techniques that i had to do some mistakes. First have a look @ the card.

haha... green flowers!!! very rare :0
For no line colouring i knew u had to stamp the images with a lighter shade colour, and so i stamped it with yellow DI and coloured it with peacock feathers........... so (yellow +blue) became green. I did have a hard time making the leaves look different from the flowers :0 :0 :0
My DI collection is small so i had to adjust with what i had.

Then i stamped the image again with peacock feathers and coloured with the same. Here is the card.

Now this looks a little better i guess. I also used tumbled glass for shading & differentiating. Here is a look at all cards together.

Ok thats it from me today. Any water colouring tips and new techniques would be highly appreciated. Also do comment on which is ur fav watercolouring technique.
