Poppies Card (bastel-traum challenge #89)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge starts at bastel-traum and our theme for the challenge #89 is Flowers. :o)

The challenge starts today, May 15th, 2020, at 9 AM, CEST (UTC +2) and ends on June 15th, 2020, at 8:55 AM, CEST (UTC +2). Find all the details about the challenge, rules and prizes in a challenge post (here).

And here is my take on the challenge: Poppies Card. :o)

On my today's card I went with same design as I used on two of my cards that I made in the summer 2018 (here and here). I went with same design, used same techniques, but I went with different flowers and color scheme. :o)

I was also inspired with a square Poppies Birthday Card that I made last summer (here), but I preferred rectangle shape for my today's card. :o)

How I made my card...

To make this card I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: gorgeous poppies from 'Poppy' stamp set and a sentiment from 'All Occasions' stamp set.

With some masking, I stamped gorgeous poppies on a white watercolor paper. I made masks of all poppies from the set when I was first time using these stamps to make a card. I stored them to use them in my future projects.

I colored gaps among flowers with a black marker and fixed some stamped lines with a black fine liner.

Then I watercolored poppies in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I glued the panel on a white top folded card base.

I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper the sentiment, cut the stripe to a desirable size, added some foam on the sentiment stripe and glued it on the card. 

As a finishing touch, I drew white details on poppies with a white pigment ink pen and my card was finished. :o)
