Poppy Trio

Hello.   Playing with a little watercolor today.
I started with the Simon Says Stamp Monday "Trio Challenge". Stamping the Painted Poppies from Altenew on Tim Holtz watercolor paper in Versamark ink. Then heat embossed the flowers with Simon's white detail powder. I then wet down the flowers and leaves and stamped them with ink. Dried with my heat gun and then wet the the background down and floated the aqua ink around the flowers. Tapping my paint brush to create speckles. After panel was dry the mounted it to a yellow top folding note card with fun foam.  The greeting from Papertrey Ink was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock and mounted to card with foam tape.

This photo is our inspiration for the latest Time Out challenge. I used the flowers and colors as my inspiration.

Simon's Wednesday challenge was Happy Birthday.

The AAA Cards challenge was watercoloring for me.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
