Watercolored Poppy

Happy Thursday! I have a watercolored poppy to share with you today.

Water coloring seems to be quite the craze these days, but if you’ve been thinking about getting a few watercolor pencils then I hope that the DT of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® can help. :) Three of us (Rita, Tiffany and myself) seem to be on the same wavelength using these awesome pencils for our posts. Can’t blame us. They’re really wonderful.

Which brings me to my card. It’s a watercolored poppy. Not traditional poppy colors, but hey…I took “artistic license”. :)


This awesome stamp is brought to you by Technique Tuesday and it’s called Budding Poppies. I’m a bit of a poppy “freak”. I can never have enough poppy stamps. I could happily color these all day long. :) It’s true!

So, on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog today I’m showing you how I made the above Watercolored Poppy card using just a few Art GRIP® Watercolor Pencils, the stamp, one of the new stencils, and a couple of other supplies. Pop over and check out the tutorial. I’d love to see you over there, too. ♥
