Poppy Gems...


Happy Sunday everybody!!

Well I am up to my eyes in work but I ordered some new crafty goodies and this stamp was one of my new purchases.  I am off down south in the morning to the Bulmers cider mill to meet some important people....and of course work!!  I'm there for three days so back late on Wednesday.

I couldn't wait to stamp and colour up this stamp as I have been eyeing it up for ages, it's from Penny Black and is called Poppy Gems.

I white embossed the image but left a section off the card...so that isn't the full image you can see.  I then coloured the image using my watercolour pens.  I gradually added colour building up the layers and I think it looks ok...I am still practising.  I also added some shading around the flowers as I think it helped them to pop out. I added a sentiment and some sequins, pearls and gems.

Iam actually loving white embossing at the moment...it is very therapeutic watercolouring over embossing, it helps not to go over the lines too....so there may be more to come lol!

I'm a sucker for poppies and this is a gorgeous stamp. I have several stamps and digis but not this one. Might just have to correct that omission! Love your colouring. Looks amazing. hugs Mrs A.

I'm just looking at cards and ran across this one in an e-mail from Little Miss Muffet showing DT cards and winners. This card is so pretty. I love watercoloring but haven't mastered it nearly as beautiful as you have. This is outstanding and I saved your card as my 'wallpaper' on my computer so I can keep looking at it. Hope that's okay to do. The colors are so vibrant and I can see how the layering of color has done this. I love your card. Hugs, Gail
