There She Goes Blog Hop: Poppies

Hello everyone! Welcome to day three of There She Goes sneak peeks! I hope you have been enjoying all of the amazing cards that the design team have been creating. I know I have! :)

This time the Trendsetters are showing off the fabulous Poppies stamp set. If you would like to win a copy of this set you just need to visit all of the Trendsetters' blogs and leave a little love on their Poppies post for today. The hop started at the There She Goes blog where you can find all of the details on winning this set. If you came to my blog from Chris's blog (she drew today's set too!) then you are in the right place, if not head back to the beginning... you really do not want to miss any of the samples today! :)

Without further ado, here is my card!


Notes: Instead of using Copic markers I used a different coloring medium today. I used SU! Classic reinkers and an AquaPainter. I *gasp* watercolored! I stamped the Poppy image in Versamark on watercolor paper and heat embossed using ultra fine black embossing powder. I then painted... or at least my attempt at painting! :)


I think I should warn you... you might be seeing this set on my blog a lot in the future because I LOVE it! So fabulous and quite a bit different from most of the sets in my collection. Yay! :)
For more eye candy head on over to the next stop on the blog hop: the fantastic Donna Wardle! I'm sure she will have a amazing sample to share. :)

Recipe:
Stamps: Poppies (There She Goes Clear Stamps). Paper: Tangerine Tango, Pure Poppy, Basic Black, watercolor, Home designer (My Mind's Eye). Ink: VersaMark, Tangerine Tango refill, Riding Hood Red refill, Cranberry Crisp refill, Memento Tuxedo Black. Other: fine black embossing powder, heat tool, silk ribbon and gingham ruffled ribbon (May Arts), sewing machine and white thread, wide oval punch, edger punch (EK Success), dimensionals.

    Your water-coloring is wonderful! It was very wise to emboss first. It helps to pool the paint. They look wonderful, and I love your ruffles!
