Watercoloured Poppy with textured background

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. With a bit more time on your hands, now might be the time to get our your watercolour paints and practice. That's what I decided to do with the Altenew Paint-a-flower Poppy stamp set, and I loved how well it came out that I used it in today's card. I paired the soft colouring with a bold colour on the background and added some soft texture to elevate the image. 

Written and photos Watercoloured Poppy with textured background: 

To start off, stamp the Altenew Paint-a-flower Poppy onto watercolour cardstock I a soft waterproof ink such as Gina K Amalgam whisper ink. Next, use your Altenew 36 Watercolor Pan set to colour the flower in. 
Remember with watercolours it is all about taking your time to build up the colours. Start off by giving one petal a soft wash of colour. Whilst letting that petal dry, work on another petal but make sure this does not touch the petal you have just painted. Once the first layer of paint is dry, you can go back in to add more colour to areas of the petal where there are shadows to add dimension. For the petals, I used the colours Crimson and Rubeltie.  
Use the same process to paint the leaves and stem in. Here I used Bamboo, Forest Glades and Evergreen for the colours.
Whilst you allow the painting to dry, you can work on the background. Place the Altenew Chevron stencil down over a piece of Hero Arts Hero Hues Nautical Cardstock. With a spatula, add decoFoil Therm O Web Champagne Mist over the stencil in a haphazard way. Set this panel to one side to dry. 
Once the background panel has dried, foam mount this onto a 5"x&" white card base. Next, fussy cut the Poppy out and foam mount onto the front. 
Next, heat embosses one of the sentiments from the stamp set in white onto black card, trimming this down to add to the front of the card. Lastly, add a few Gold Nuvo Drops to finish the card off.
