Painted Poppy Elements

Do you ever order something and then it goes unopened for a while? You think... what will I do with this?  That was me with the Poppy Elements.

You get 8 sheets: 2 of the poppy die cuts (nice heavy cardstock), 2 that are embossed with white embossing powder on our thick watercolor paper, 2 with vellum elements and 2 with black shapes with nice clear embossing.

Wow... so super easy to use! I created 3 cards using mainly the water color and the vellum pieces.   To water color, use an inkpad or a re-inker and an aquapainter and just scribble. I really mean it! Dip the brush in the ink and swirl it on the flowers (I used Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry). Go right over the edge. Then swirl on the green, I used Old Olive.  When dry, press out from the sheet.

If it's too dark, dab with paper towel.  Add a few layers of color by "dotting on" some ink. Let it dry. At then end rub your paper towel over the shapes and there they are .. so pretty!  Do you see the flowers below on the left with the layers of color?

I love this pinky look with Razzleberry.  The back layer is Lovely Lipstick (this is a retiring in-color, so get your Lovely Lipstick supplies as soon as you can!)

And a few close ups. You'll see I dry embossed with the Parisian folder (any folder works great) and I added some gems from the Valentine collection (the Poppy sequins were more red than pink). 

All card bases are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded from Thick Whisper White

Card dimensions: Lovely Lipstick layer 3 5/8 x 4  7/8, WW 3 ½ x 4 ¾

And a different look with the Poppy Parade inks and can you see...behind the flower is a vellum shape.

Here's a close up

Card dimensions: DSP 2 3/4 x 4, black shape from the elements pack and congratulations is stamped on 3/4"

This one uses some of the matching DSP - I love the Razzleberry colors of these poppies

Card dimensions:   DSP 5 x 3 ¾, WW 3 x 4 ¼
