Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop

Even though I'm a watercoloring newbie, I couldn't resist playing along with the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blop Hop.
The inspiration cards are absolutely stunning, I can't wait to try out the techniques and new tools (if I can find a way to fund those!).
It took me 3 attempts to get the look I liked. After stamping and clear heat embossing my Hero Arts Flower Cling Stamp (I don't remember the name of the stamp) on watercolor paper,  I randomly colored my image with Gelatos. The colors I used were - Banana, watermelon, raspberry and metallic grape. I spritzed the colored image with water and let the colors run into each other, I also ran over it with my finger to blend the colors further, the end result was some beautiful hues of pink and purple.
The colors remind me of the beautiful sunsets I would see from my grandma's house while growing up...linking the card to Less is More Week 227 Color Challenge - Sunsets.

The card's layout is inspired by this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch - #126
