Midweek already. The year is more than half over - it flies by faster and faster!
Here is a watercolor poppy card. It's for the Unity Color Challenge.
If you have not tried the Bristol White Watercolor paper yet, boy, are YOU in for a real treat! If feels as smooth as Gina K. Designs smooth 120# cardstock. If you do use wet on wet or lots of water, the paper can pill a little bit but cleans up nicely with a little rag or tissue/paper towel.
This is a fairly simple, straightforward card but had to let it dry since yesterday because the jar is covered in 3D Crystal Lacquer and the dots are Ranger Enamel Accents - takes a good, long time to dry everything. Then using a pair of scissors, I scraped the edging for a little distress look.
Stamp Set: "As We Go Along" by Unity; "Irish Blessing" verse by SU (on red layer)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (poppies); VersaFine Smoke Grey (verse layer)
Cardstock GKD white and red cardstock, AC black cardstock; Strathmore Bristol 300 Series Watercolor tablet (my new favorite watercolor paper I think)
