Happy Little Stampers: Watercolour

The arrival of a new month (well almost, here in Canada) means the monthly challenges at Happy Little Stampers begin with the Watercolour Challenge! It seemed a good time for some flowers: 

This large poppy from Concord & 9th is actually two stamps - the smaller flower to the right has a gap built into the stem so it can be combined with the larger one, or used with a sentiment. (You even get the fill-in stem piece if these options don't work with your plan.) In the mood for a little shimmer, I painted these with my Twinkling H2Os. I obviously had been looking at too many Debby Hughes cards recently, and so added lots of splatter, too - hers look like art, mine look like... splatter. :D After everything dried, I die cut my panel and added the sentiment - black ink along with black sparkle embossing powder, to make sure it popped against the leaves. A pale green card base finishes the card. 

A lot of my HLS teammates were in the flower mood this month, too - but not all! Each card is worth your time to view. :) You have the month to join us! 

Supplies: Hero Arts green layering cardstock, Canson watercolour paper, Concord & 9th Pretty Poppy stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Wow clear gloss & Ranger black sparkle embossing powder, Twinkling H2Os, Winnie & Walter Katharine cutaway pierced rectangle die, gold Smooch, black acrylic paint

Pin It Now!

I like to get out my Twinkling H2O's and use them also. Splatters are good - I probably add them to 75 percent of my projects. They just add a little extra interest. Beautiful Card

Your beautiful card has a wonderfully soft, delicate look to it! I love your splatters!! I recently over splattered a panel and it is sitting looking at me!! I'm thinking of fussy cutting the flowers, lightly washing over the splatters on the flowers and ..... who knows!!! Hopefully that will work!! ?! Maybe it will turn up one day!! Stay safe!! :)
