I used an Altenew set called Painted Poppy and came up with this card:
I started by embossing the outline image with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder...for me this technique helps keep the water color more inside the lines. Then I used my MISTI and stamped the two layering images with Gina K's Red Velvet and Cherry Red inks and then spritzed with water before stamping each layer. I also used my Aqua Painter to move the color around a bit to give the more loose look of water coloring. I did the same for the leaf and the bud and then fussy cut my images out.
Before mounting my Poppy to the card front, I added a piece of white cardstock that I had die cut with a die from AliExpress to give some dimension and visual interest to the background. My sentiment comes from PTI's Winter Woods stamp set.
Check out what the rest of the DT came up with and also our Special GD, and then play along with us right HERE. We can't wait to see our gallery filled with lots of POPPIES!!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
