Rubbernecker Design Team Sunday- Watercolor Poppies 2 Ways!

Rubbernecker Design Team Sunday- Watercolor Poppies 2 Ways!

Hello, and welcome to another Rubbernecker design team Sunday. I hope that you are having a really great weekend. Today I have two cards to share with you using the stamp set Watercolor Poppies #719.  I wanted to share how easy it is to totally change the feeling of a card just by changing the colors you are using, or the layout/card sketch. For this first card I have used a hot pink and purple color combo. I used the Les Miserables #673 background stamp in a deep purple ink on my hot pink card stock. I used my Misti, a water brush, and inks to create the water color look on this card. The watercolor Poppies stamp set makes it really easy too! I used my oval dies to to cut out my image and mat it with another scalloped oval in purple, then attached the focal image with foam tape, to pop it up a bit. The sentiment from Best Friends Etc. #3032, finishes this card off nicely. I have been using this sentiment set SO much, it is really a wonderful set!

For my second card I used oranges, reds, and yellows for my color combo, with a touch of black to make everything really stand out. I stamped Vertical Stripe #686 in a deep orange on my orange background paper. I used the same coloring technique as with the purple and pink card, misti, water brush, and inks.  I simply cut my focal image into a square and backed it with black, just slightly larger than the focal image . The background piece is also mated in black, with a second layer in yellow. Again I used Best Friends Etc. #3032 for my sentiment. I added a little black twine to finish it all off.

So there you have it Watercolor Poppies 2 ways,  I hope you have enjoyed these cards as much as I did making them!
