More fresh poppiesPosted: February 15, 2015 Filed under: Fresh | Tags: Fabriano Watercolour Paper, Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress stains 14 Comments
When I posted the first card made with the ‘fresh’ stamp I mentioned another watercolour panel where I painted the same stamped poppies but had created a different effect. Once again I stamped the image with several different distress inks and then painted inside the petals by pulling colour from the outline as well adding extra stain with a paintbrush. I worked a petal at a time so I could preserve some of the stamped outlines of the image. If I had spritzed with water at this point I could have ended up with a loose image like the pink one I posted first, but who knows; watercolour is an unpredictable technique. I painted the blue background after the poppies had dried to restrict the bleeding from the petals and stems into the background.

It’s not hard to understand why this is your favorite technique. You’re so good at it, Heather. I’m not sure which of the two I like best. The first one. No, the second one.. . .
Fresh and Bright. Lovely colouring. Thanks for joining the fun at CAS-ual Fridays challenge this month 🙂
Hmm, now I don’t know which way I like the poppies more. I think I like both cards equally. I do like the summery blue background on this one!
This is so pretty! Love the background!
