My cards today feature the new Delicate Pretty Poppies by Lisa Johnson. This is a follow up set to the wildly popular pretty poppies set, and this one is a line art set, which is perfect for coloring, watercoloring, and doing different techniques than with the original solid set. BONUS: It works with the previously released die set (SCORE).
Up first is this card with watercolored poppies. I didn't want the white outline on the die cut, so I watercolored the entire die cut, even outside of the lines. I like the finished product. In the background, I sponged pigment ink over the Grid Stencil, and then stamped the word background strip from Pretty Poppies in Daffodil. The sentiment was stamped on a Dimensional Banner. I accented around the flowers with Copic Opaque White.
Next up is this simple, but took me 2 hours to make card. :) The flowers are die cut and then colored to bring out the detail of the flowers. They are popped up over the stems, and a trio of score lines adds just a touch of texture to the backdrop of the card. The sentiment was stamped in black, and I layered the front panel on a panel of Black Licorice.
