I used Kuretake Zig markers (my favorite watercolor medium right now). I used 3 tones of purples/pinks to achieve the look on these petals and a good amount of patience... I tried to color using as little water as possible, wetting one petal at a time before I started adding color, moving my brush carefully towards the end of the petals each time.
I know many have been wanting to try this out, so I went ahead and tested the technique first for you! It does work and the effect is just as it would be with a rubber stamped image! I personally love this flower so much, but watercoloring makes it even better!
