Poppy Trio

I love these poppies and inked them with Distress Stain and Markers.

Then I used a damp Aqua Painter to move the color around. 

I finished off by dotting the centers with a black marker.

The aperture was cut with my Circle Collection Framelits
and embossed with my favorite embossing folder.

Heather Telford has a fantastic tutorial on this technique.
Thanks, Heather, for sharing your technique.


Cuttlebug Mania is looking for
(I used my Big Shot to do the embossing)

because I used a snippet of black for that sentiment.

Thanks for the visit.

Pretty, pretty. I think I colored this same image with Zigs, while we were in Fla (in October). Your w/c is - as always - gorgeous, and this looks lovely, framed in the black circle, with that wonderful SU Emboss look. Very classy & welcome colors on a gray afternoon. TFS & Hugs

What a fabulous water colour image Bonnie! I love distress markers softened like this - and the crisp die cut backing is a perfect foil.

Love this stamp and how you colored it -- such a vibrant yet soft look -- and a nice change from looking at Christmas cards (!). Your water coloring techniques are amazing.

Those poppies are gorgeous framed in black with your signature embossing, Bonnie.

I thought that was an aperture instead of being layered onto the embossing. Gorgeous! That red POPS!
