Poppies are my favorite flower and these in Penny Black’s Poppy Pattern background stamp are GORGEOUS!  I made this card today for a Faux Watercolor challenge in my Facebook stamping group!  To create this look, I pretty much just scribbled with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers markers onto the stamp itself, starting with my lightest shades (yellows) then adding the darker ones (orange and red).  I tried to color “strategically” by using darker colors where I thought the shady parts of the blossoms would be but really, I just ended up putting color everywhere!  😀

After my stamp was colored in, I spritzed with a mist of water and stamped it onto a piece of Bristol Smooth watercolor paper.  The water moves and blends the ink to mimic the look of “real” water-coloring!

I’ve had this lovely verse sentiment for ten years or more, and thought it would be the perfect addition as I yearn for springtime and flowers and birds!  I don’t recall where I got the stamp or who makes it, unfortunately.  Lastly, I attached the vellum with two green brads, layered the watercolor panel onto a piece of light green card stock and then onto a white base card.  I hope you enjoy the bright colors and hopeful sentiment!  🙂
