Good afternoon....

I hope you are all well and had a good weekend?  I did make a visit to a new coffee shop on Saturday and it was enjoyable.  We have sun today but hubby tells me it's not warm enough for me to sit in the garden, I'm a greenhouse plant!

Onto today's card with a little watercolouring

I stamped the two poppies onto watercolour card using a Distress Ink in 'antique linen'.  I coloured the stems and leaves with 'peeled paint' (DI) then the poppies with 'candied apple' (DI).  I then used a very fine black sharpie and drew the lines on each poppy 

The sentiment comes with the same Woodware stamp set - Poppy.  This was stamped and embossed with WOW Clear Embossing Powde

I haven't used splatters for a while so I diluted 'black soot' (DI) onto my glass mat and enjoyed myself splattering until I hit the brush too hard and created a think black line.... hence the 3 black NUVO drops to cover the line.  Isn't that annoying when you've nearly, or even finished, your design and bang you do something silly to spoil it?!

I added the watercolour colour card onto red cardstock then added it to the black base card to tie in the colour combo

Until tomorrow....
