Playing with Pleasant Poppies - Day 3

If you would like to pin this to Pinterest, please hover over the image and then click on the P. 

Today's Pleasant Poppies card uses the same watercoloring techniques as the last two. But, I decided to pair it with some Designer Series Paper (this particular pattern is retired, but many of our DSP's will work well with this). I tried to keep the embellishments simple - ribbon with no bow and a simple punched, layered sentiment. Come back in a few days for my final Pleasant Poppies card.

To make this card you will need:

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, and Poppy Parade (retired) cardstock; Designer Series Paper* (while this particular pattern is retired, many of our current papers would look great - just modify your ink & cardstock colors to accomodate).

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Pleasant Poppies

Ink: Old Olive marker, Basic Black Craft Ink, Poppy Parade Refill (retired)

Other: narrow white ribbon, black embossing powder, embossing heat tool, adhesive (I used Snail to adhere the layers together & Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment), Modern Label Punch, and Word Window Punch.

*as an alternative to DSP, you could use plain, colored cardstock. Or you could jazz up the cardstock by embossing it with a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder or stamping with Versamark or colored ink.

Happy Stamping!!!
