Penny Black Field of Poppies

Penny Black Field of Poppies by judkajudy

This is another card made from the stamps I was so lucky to win on the Penny Black blog, just for leaving a comment!

Jill Foster demonstrated how she uses watercolor pencils and an Aqua Brush to watercolor the Penny Black images. She first colors a part of the flower, then lays down plain water ahead of that colored portion and then uses the Aqua Brush to move the color into the water!! Exactly the opposite of how I have used watercolor pencils! it is super fun!

After I watercolored the image, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist khaki. The photo does not pick up the slight sheen that the Gllimmer Mist adds.

I embossed the white matt with an Embossibilities chevron folder. And of course, I had to stitch a bit!!
I can see this image being one that I reach for often for any number of occasions! Thanks, Penny Black!!

And thank you for stopping by today.

Really wonderful colouring Judy! I love the shading around the outside of the image and all the wonderful texture.

Your coloring turned out beautifully, Judy! (I always did it the opposite way too.) Love this gorgeous card!

Sally said...

Awesome coloring on this design, Judy! The zig zag stitching is a great accent paired with the chevron embossing folder, too!

Love how this turned out, Judy, and now I can't wait to get home to my watercolors to play with this technique! That mist gives a wonderful effect - I though at first you'd stamped on leather or fabric or something.

I just received that stamp in an order a couple of days ago and saw your card on facebook. It is gorgeous! I hope I can do as well with it as you did.
