Watercolor Poppies - MFT Just Add Color

August 9, 2018

It's time for MFT Just Add Color feature for August. The MFT DT members are showing our coloring skills using the latest release.

I have two cards to share with you today. I'm totally in love with the Painted Poppies stamp set and had to try no-line watercoloring with it.

For my first card, I went with 'normal' colors for poppies - vermillion and a little bit yellow. The poppies were stamped onto watercolor paper with Kraft Hybrid Ink using the masking technique. The sentiment is from the new From Me to You stamp set.

For my second card, I turned the same flower images into blue poppies. Honestly, I don't know much about blue poppy. But I believe that those non-dissected leaf images in the set can be used for blue poppies.

I added a couple of Clear Round Drops to the petals. The sentiment is from the From All of Us stamp set and it was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Make sure you stop by the MFT blog to see the fabulous coloring skills and techniques from the DT members!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
