Watercolored Poppies Cards

For the bridal shower card I was working on, I also painted these two poppies backgrounds. I just was not sure how literal I wanted to go using the dress as inspiration.

Both cards were painted with the same watercolor colors.

Since I did not use them for the card for my friend, I turned them in to birthday cards that I need to send this month.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Arches watercolor paper, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi #31, 58, 95 (95 is metallic white, I mixed that with the other 2 colors, it was not used stand alone), embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.
