Watercoloring a stamped image (Part II)

I'm sharing part II of watercoloring a stamped image today where the image was colored with watercolor pencils.  I think this one is quite elegant:

While I was searching for outline stamps for coloring, these rose images came to mind.  I like that they are very elegant and the images have some built-in shading to give me guidance for coloring.  After all, I am not a coloring professional so any help would mean a lot to me.

I have always been intimidated by coloring and I don't even try to expand my comfort zone until I got these watercolor pencils.  They are good for novice like me!  Just like regular color pencils, we could color directly on the image.  The intensity of the color can be easily controlled by adding more pigment or water to it.  Mistakes can easily be hidden or fixed.  These watercolor pencils work like magic for me!

Now that I have taken these watercolor pencils out I am going to color some more........

Before that I am linking up my card to the following:
