    Canvas Poppies


    I used Thursday's card: Poppies! as inspiration for today's 3D item - a stamped canvas! Starting with a 5"x7" wrapped canvas, stamp the Pleasant Poppies using Black Stazon directly onto the canvas. Then colour the image using Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Wonder Crayons. For some of the flowers I coloured right onto the canvas, but for the stems and smaller flowers I used a blender pen and took the colour off the bottom of the Watercolor Wonder Crayon and then applied to the canvas. For the grass I used a few different green Watercolor Wonder Crayons directly on the canvas and blurred them together using an Aqua painter. After allowing the piece to dry, it was finished off with a strip of 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Lucky Limeade, a punched greeting and a Cherry Cobbler designer button!

    Supplies
    Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, Teeny Tiny Wishes
    Ink: Black Stazon, Cherry Cobbler, Regals Water Color Wonder Crayons (Always Artichoke, Garden Green, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Riding Hood Red)
    Paper: Whisper White
    Accessories: Aquapainter, Blender Pen, Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Designer Button, Glue Dot, 5"x7" Canvas

    Poppies!

    I love Cajun Craze Poppies, aren't they fabulous? When I started with Riding Hood Red I knew I wanted to keep in the same colour collection. Stampin' Up! makes it really easy by having colours in collections, they work together so well!

    The poppies are embossing in black on water colour paper. Then using Stampin' Write Markers to colour in the images, going over the areas where you want to highlight the poppies. Make sure to leave some white space on the poppies for added dimension! Finish the center of some of the poppies with Early Espresso and colour in the stems using Always Artichoke.

    Supplies
    Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, Teeny Tiny Wishes
    Ink/Markers: Riding Hood Red, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Always Artichoke, Versamark
    Paper: Riding Hood Red, Water colour paper
    Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Designer Button, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Modern Label Punch, Black Embossing Powder Big Shot, Labels Framelits, Chevron Textured Impressions Folder
