Purple Poppy

Today I had a little bit of time to play and created this card for my Granny-in-laws birthday:

It was created using watercolour paper and some of the new inks I won which are from Oak House Studio. The colours I used were French Wine, French Lavender and a smidge of French Mint. This was my first go at using these inks and I found them very good, I had a go at spraying, dripping and painting with them.

Stamped the Poppy from Paperartsy Hot Pick HP1505 in black then masked and created the background using the large script stamp from Hot Pick HP1501 in a combination of distress inks in peacock feathers and shaded lilac.

A bit of harlequin stencilling using the shaded lilac distress ink and then also a bit of white paint and some splattering with the white paint also.

Added the criss crosses from Sara Naumann Paperartsy plate ESN11 and then the sentiment which is by Inkylicious.

Layered onto black card then onto a Kraft card blank.

All done :)
