I used the SweetStamps Poppy Garden image on this card and I tried out a new product named Color Burst and had a great time coloring the poppies and creating the background. Color Burst is a powder in a small bottle and when it hits the water it will burst into color so if you aren't a pro at watercolor this product make it look like you're pro. See a video here.
The image is heat embossed with detail black powder, this does help stop the flow of water from the background onto the blossoms and I didn't wet the blossoms until after the background was created. Rather than blow the powder onto the paper I placed it in a paint pallet and picked it up with a wet brush to avoid getting the powder on the flower petals. A tiny bit of powder goes a long way!
The yellow panel was sponging with the ATC Mini Art Stencil - Stained Glass by moving it around the panel as I sponged with Ranger Distress Ink - Mustard Seed.
The small butterflies are from Globecraft and Piccolo and they are heat embossed with the Micro White powder then attached to the card with Aleene's tacky glue.
