More Floral Stem Collage

Hi,  welcome to my latest obsession...

Poppystamps Floral Stem Collage!

This time I cut it from mixed media paper and added watercolor to the flower
using my inkpads and an Aqua Painter.

It was super easy so I did another.

Don't you love it when you can get a lot of mileage out of one die?

In case you missed it, I used this die HERE and HERE.

There's still a few days left to enter at
CAS Watercolour
It's open until the 24th.

and the Poppystamps Challenge is open until the end of the month

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Two smashing cards--the SU watermelon color, the die and the EF's are a wow together. And looks fairly easy to put together. (Hope OBX time and weather going well.)

Both your cards are so beautiful with your die cut flowers watercolored and your embossing folder backgrounds. All your cards are wonderful examples of the versatility of your die cut framed flowers. TFS Bonnie. Hugs...

The more I see you use this the more I have to have it, Bonnie. What a danger to my budget (grin)! Love the light wash you added to it this time!

Loving the multiple uses you are giving this die - these two are stunning cards, love the texture on the first and the pop of colour in the layers in the second card

Two fantastic cards with this pretty die, Bonnie! I went to order it, but it is out of stock. No wonder. Probably every crafter that saw your cards went and bought the die! :) Great designs, my friend. xx
