Pleasant Poppies

CAS212The NOT so simple clean and simple card!  So today (as in all Mondays) is the clean and simple challenge on SCS.  You all know how I LOVE that challenge.  Today it was an inspiration picture from pintrest of this AWESOME cake that was black and gold and had poppies on it.  I immediately thought of this stamp.  I really should have stopped there.  I am absolutely NO GOOD at coloring and it takes me FOREVER!!!  Where I can usually whip out a CAS card in under 15 mins…the coloring along probably took me 1/2 hour.   But…it turned out cute so I thought I’d share.

The base of the card is Basic Black (like the cake).  I stamped the poppies using StazOn Jet Black on watercolor paper then used my Riding Hood Red, Lucky Limeade and More Mustard markers to color in along with a blender pen.  This is mounted on a piece of Riding Hood Red then onto the card base.  Next I stamped the greeting using Basic Black on More Mustard, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  I colored the pearls using my Gold Glimmer marker (makes them look Lucky Limeade in real life) then added to the card to finish it off.

Set(s): Pleasant Poppies, Sweet Essentials
Paper: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, More Mustard, Watercolor
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Riding Hood Red, Lucky Limeade, More Mustard
Other: Blender Pen, Basic Pearls, Gold Glimmer Pen, Dimensionals


Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

  2. Hi Mary, Your card is just beautiful! I had to chuckle reading about it because that is how I feel about water coloring! 🙂 I really love your card. TFS!

  3. Definitely worth the effort Mary. Your watercoloured poppies are just beautiful.

  4. The card is beautiful, Mary….I think the watercoloring turned out very nicely so hopefully it was worth all the time and trouble it took to do it. 😉 I am also WC challenged so I understand.

    Saw your card on the splitcoast CAS challenge thread so after reading your comment had to come on over and check it out. I think it’s a great card!
