Pink Poppies for CAS Watercolour

Hello friends.

I have another poppy today.

There's still time to join in at

We have a wonderful gallery of poppies over there and our
Design Team along with our Guest Designer, Rachel have even more
beautiful poppy cards to share with you.

I've inked this poppy with Distress ink and Distress Markers and used
my waterbrush to blend the colors.

I even got brave and die some splattering!

I hope you'll come join us at CAS Watercolour.
Challenge ends on the 24th.

And I'm taking this over to
Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Definitely another beauty Bonnie! Your poppies are GORGEOUS and I always love how you lightly water color the background too! (I'm still too chicken to do that!!) And your splattering looks FABULOUS! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

Beautiful coloring, Bonnie. Thanks for listing colors used of inks and markers. The splatters sure work well with that soft washed background. Gotta "think spring" with this pretty card!

Oh Bonnie, this is spectacular. I noticed the background first as it really is gorgeous. I'm glad you got brave enough to splatter! The water color poppies are beautiful. The shading on the flowers and leaves looks perfect.

Beautiful soft poppies! Wonderful watercolouring of the poppies and a lovely watercolour wash in the background. I've really enjoyed this poppy challenge as I have so many poppy stamps and enjoy seeing all the ways people are using them.

Brenda said...

Your card is just gorgeous Bonnie! I am so loving that poppy. But it is your background that really drew me in. I love how it looks! I was trying to figure out if you did those splatters or if it was in the paper, then I read. What a wonderful job you did with the splatters, they really make the card! Hugs, Brenda
