Technostampers Monday Lunch Sketch

Here I am with more must be spring fever :). It's still mostly dreary and cold in Wisconsin, but little bits of green are peaking through.
You can see sketch details on Mary Jo's blog, and play along too.

I'm a color lover. Hardly ever will I make a card using pastels. I love bright colors and/or rich, deep colors. Especially when I am using flowers.

I pulled this stamp set out for another project, but since I just love the poppy flower, ended up making 4 other cards with it.

The poppies are stamped with staz-on onto watercolor paper, and colored with re-inkers. This is my current favorite way to watercolor. I say current, because I also love to use watercolor crayons, but right now the crayons have been getting a little rest :).

Enough blathering and on to the card:
The background was made using a Big Shot texture plate. To be honest, I just lucked out having the River Rock layer's texture match up with the red texture. Love it when that happens though!
All Supplies SU:
Set: Bloomin' Beautiful
Cardstock: Textured River Rock, black, red riding hood, watercolor paper,
Ink: Staz-on, red riding hood, tangering tango, summer sun, old olive, garden green

Those flower are so fabulous in those colors. Love them. I also love the way the embossing matches up--even if it was a mistake. Beautiful card, thanks for playing.
