Power Poppy Tulip

Here is something a little different from me. This is the Tulips Digital Stamp from Power Poppy. I took the digital stamp and lightened it to a light grey in my editing program, then I printed it off and traced it with an Elegant Writer calligraphy pen, THne when that pen is hit with water you get all these pretty blue and pink hues that you see all through the front of this card. It’s a slow process but I really love the way it looks.

I then took my Golden Qor Watercolours to fill in and add some more color to the card (if I was to remake this card the purple flower in the middle would be in the same colour family as the other 2, I feel that the purple flower kinda gets lost. But I still love the card). Once it was all dry I cut the panel to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and matted it on white then put it on a green card base.
