This card will be entered into the Challenge at Altenew, From Places Abroad--France, Stamping Sensations, Flower Power, and Simon Says Monday, Make Your Own Background.
I decided to try my hand at water coloring again, but this time I do believe I love the outcome, phew! I made some water colored paper in several light shades of green and a spot of light pink, then using PTI's Chevron Vertical Cover Plate die I created my background. I softened that look by covering it all in a sheet of Vellum. I then created some water color paper in different shades of pink and cut out my Poppies using the Painted Poppy sets from Altenew, then I stamped the flowers in Tuxedo Black ink. These were placed on a plain panel of water color paper....which looked blah, so I made 3 flower masks and spritzed some green ink all over it....much better!
Then I began to have even more FUN! I cut out 3 of the budding poppies and began painting them with inks and water....these are what I absolutely ADORE! Love the colors and the way they blended one into another. Added some Corner Punches and some fabulous pink Sheer Ribbon that came off of my Valentine Chocolates--c'mon you all do that too, right???
My absolute favorite part of this entire creation! YUM!
Thanks for Poppy-ing by.....yeah that never gets old lol
