Watercoloured Poppies

Hello friends, today's card is a little different for me - water colouring - such a lovely technique and it has been some time since I have done any, so I have started with something simple.

I have stamped the Penny Black Charming cling stamp onto watercolour paper using black ink. I have spritzed the water colour paper using a shimmer spray before stamping - I could have used water, but thought the shimmer would add an interesting touch.

The image has been coloured using Watercolor Paint 36 Colors by Melissa Francis - available at Want2Scrap; along with the Water Brush Set - 3 PackThey are so easy to use and layering colour could not be easier!  You can check out the links - to have a proper look - you won't be disappointed.

The paint splatters are also done using the Watercolor Paint 36 Colors by Melissa Francis and the aqua pen. The image has been layered onto black card stock using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Permanent Adhesive Runner and onto a  The card front and card base have been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders  A-2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.    Finishing off by randomly adding Want2Scrap Black Rhinestones - Baby Bling - 100 Count.
