Highland Poppies

 Watercoloring does not have to be difficult. I found that if I added color on a clear block, sprayed it with a bit of water, and then smashed it onto a watercolor panel it looked wonderful! Of course, this is my opinion. I let it dry. Then I stamped directly onto it. What do you think?

   Painted Poppies
   Lovely You

   Rococo Rose A-2
   Watercolor Paper 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4

   Rococo Rose
   Highland Heather
   Pear Pizzazz
   Archival Basic Black

   Clear Block Stamping "E"

   Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins
   Water Spritzer (Mister)
   Shimmery Crystal Effects

I added some shimmery crystal effects to a few of the poppies. I did not like the effect on this card. I think it just made a black spot. This is probably because I did not add color to the poppies, so it accented the black ink. I will have to play some more with this and get back to all of you. I have used crystal effects before, and it created a gel like dome.
