This is no secret that I am obsessed with water colors, mostly because that was my primary medium to express while growing up and I am just excited to see that it has caught up so well in the industry.

I chose to color the Sunflower from the Classic Sunflower Collection using distress inks and indulging in some no line watercoloring. I masked the flowers a couple of times to create the bunch.

I love how it turned out and I hope you like it too.

Here is the Blog Hop order to get you started.

For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil.
