Hi there and welcome! I hope you are doing well this fine Friday! For today's Power Poppy post I have gone way out on a limb. I would like to share with you my very first post of a water colored image/card. I have been seeing beautifully water colored cards everywhere these days and thought I would try my hand with this medium. I chose to use the darling Hen & Chicks image from the Sassy Succulents stamp set for this card. So, how did it go? I think I need some more practice! :) My first attempt ended up in the circular file, but my second try was better. I did have fun playing with some different colors! :)
My image and sentiment was stamped with Tsukineko's Staz On Jet Black ink onto some water color paper. My card is a couple of very simple layers with a bit of stitching on the left edge...I wanted to keep it really clean and simple for my image panel. Once I colored my image up, I wrapped some string and a button around the panel and adhered it to my card base. This card measures 3 1/4" x 5 1/8".
Just look at all of that gorgeous detail on this image! This sweet and supportive sentiment is part of this same set....I just love the mix of font and hand lettering here. Marcella really did a beautiful job highlighting these amazing succulents.
Well, that is all for my card today, but a few of my amazingly talented Bloomie sisters have some beautifully crafted cards for your Friday inspiration. Make sure you leave them a little blog love while you are there. I am so glad you were able to stop by for a visit! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and until next time, take care! :)
