Watercolor Poppies Card

Welcome to my blog!  I’m revisiting one of my favorite stamp sets today–MFT’s Pretty Poppies.  These flower images were a lot of fun to use with distress inks and watercolors.

First I stamped out the poppies with distress ink.  I used Ripe Persimmon–it was the perfect base color of orangey-red.

Then it was time to pull out my tin of Prima watercolors to add more dimension to my flowers.

I stamped up the block of text that came in the set with poppy red ink to add interest to the plain white panel around the flowers.  I added the sentiment and a little twine and my card was complete!  I love the old-fashioned look of this card.
