A composition using camellia flowers

In this trial the paper was just soaked in water. The flowers and foliage were patted on a stamp pad of ferrous sulphate before being placed on the water colour paper. The flowers are camelia flowers. The dark blue imprints are from red flowers, the more lavender coloured one at the bottom from pale pink. I have noted that red flowers often print in botanicals as blue. The leaves, also tapped on the ferrous sulphate stamp pad are rose leaves and nadina major leaves. It was heat pressed for 6 minutes
