The image is from Power Poppy's Countryside Bouquet Delux and it's stamped onto a new water color paper I'm trying, this is a bit lighter and whiter, from Strathmore and it's the 90lb. pad. I liked it a lot, the image was stamped with Versafine Onix Black ink and it was perfect. At first the colors I chose didn't seem to go together at all, I mean Night of Navy and Tangerine Tango???!! for the flowers but the good thing is that, once you apply the water they change a little and I was able to shade this pretty blooms and give them detail with the fine tip of the marker.
I didn't want to color those little flowers on the top with the same colors so I combined them to create a new one, here is a picture of them, they really look pretty.
I applied the Night of Navy at the base, mixed a bit of Wild Wasabi and then, just a touch of the Tangerine Tango on the top, when I applied my aqua painter, they blended really nicely.
I finished the card by cutting a couple of slots next to the base of the bouquet and using a tapestry needle, I wrapped a piece of linen thread around, I could have just colored this but I didn't want to do it with neither of this colors so I thought the thread would look better.
The ribbon is from my bottomless stash, the pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
I inked up the sentiment and the flower with the markers I chose.
Here is the banner that inspired my card.
I hope you give this fun challenge a try, like I said, if you don't have any Power Poppy stamps, this is your chance to win one, believe me, you will fall in love with them, they are gorgeous.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
