Hi! Cupcake Inspirations have a challenge which ends in a few hours, so I've been hurrying to make something suitable! Here's what I came up with:

I inked through my wildflower stencil onto watercolour paper, and then embossed in gold. I scribbled in navy and deep blues with watercolour pencils and then blended with a water brush. Once it was dry, I flipped the stencil over and added a few more silhouettes using a white Uni Posca pen.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations (yes, I know it's blue rather than navy, but it was navy before I blended, honest!)

Inkspirational Challenges:

Papertake: "Take Your Pick" - Colour theme: Blue & green – either or, or even both together

Crafts Galore: "Anything Goes in August"

ABC Challenge: "'O' is for Open (Anything Goes)"
