April SCS Creative Crew Catalogue Focus

SU-Creative-CrewWhether it be with an ink pad and aqua painter, markers, watercolour pencils, making a background or dying something, what can you do with water and ink?

I love to colour in!  As soon as I saw this challenge I knew exactly what stamp set I would be using!

SU, Stampin' Up!, Mel Sharp, Pleasant Poppies, Itty Bitty Banners, Handmade, Birthday Card, Watercolour

I love the Pleasant Poppies background stamp!  Those poppies are just beautiful, and I love colouring them in!  I used a blender pen and ink pads to colour with.  The darker poppy was coloured onto watercolour paper, cut out and popped up on a dimensional.

I love how this card turned out!  It would make a beautiful sympathy card, or a fantastic Mother’s Day card too!

Popping in quickly today to share a card I made a while ago using the gorgeous Pleasant Poppies stamp.

I love colouring in, so really enjoyed making this card 🙂  I coloured my poppies for the front of the card on a separate sheet of watercolour paper then cut them out and popped them on dimensionals.

That two-tone ribbon from our Occasions Catalogue really sets it off I think!
