This week at The Friday Mashup Holly is our hostess and she has a nice simple sketch for us plus she'd like to see watercoloring on our project. I used the Pleasant Poppies stamp, this is always one of my favorite images to watercolor. I used my Aquapainters and Real Red and Old Olive ink to color in the flowers. I decided to give the card a bit of a softer look by rounding the top corners and then I stamped the sentiment on a strip of watercolor paper, watercolored over it with Old Olive and then cut it into a banner and popped it up over the poppies. It's hard to see in the photos but I used a red Wink of Stella pen along the lines of the flowers for a little extra pop.
Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us!
