Sunday Sketch Poppies

WoooHooo - it's a colour challenge today at Sunday Stamps.  Our combination is
Basic Gray
Summer Starfruit
Primrose Petals

I enjoyed working with this combination - as soon as I saw the Primrose Petals I knew I wanted to pull out my Pleasant Poppies and try them out for the first time.  I embossed the image with Black on regular Whisper White card stock.  Using an aqua painter and ink pressed into the lid of the ink pad, I painted the flowers for a watercolour look.  I tried doing it on watecolour paper, but the colours bled out of the embossing quite a bit.   
I love poppies, but I don't seem to be able to grow them very well.

Have fun with this combination.  When you've finished, be sure to link your project  up to the Sunday Stamps Challenge Blog so we can take a look.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog, no matter what, to see what the other members of the Design Team have come up with.

Hope your day is blooming with goodness!
Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely card, Joan! I especially love the layered boarder and how you've used the ribbon.

I love that embossed look on the flowers they really pop! Great use of the Challenge colors too!
