Today I have a card to share that I made for two challenges - Sunday's Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers and the April CAS Watercolour Card Challenge.
I CASEd a card of Angie's (stampinhappy on SCS) that had a poppies image on it and the CAS Watercolour challenge is to use poppies - so I hit two challenges with one card!
It seems I only have two poppy stamps in my vast array of floral stamps in my craft room!??
Today I used a two stamp set from Rubbernecker aptly called Watercolor Poppies for my card. I put the flower piece in my Stamp Platform and colored the areas on the stamp with Ranger Distress Markers -Festive Berries on the poppies, Forest Moss on the leaves and Gathered Twigs on the stems. I spritzed the stamp with water and pressed it against a panel of watercolor paper.
I dried the panel with my heat tool and then positioned the outline stamp over the colored image, put the outline stamp on the Stamp Platform, inked it in black and pressed it over the panel.
This is a great way to watercolor a stamp if your not adept at regular watercoloring ie. with water and paint (which I am NOT although I'm trying to learn!)
I die cut the panel using the medium frame from Pierced Feature Frames: Rectangles from PTI (they are presently on sale!). Then I layered the outer frame on foam dots onto a white card base and adhered the inside panel inside the frame.
