Watercolor Poppies
by Laura Fulcher

Greetings friends.  Today I am sharing some watercolor poppies that are accented with a little washi tape. I started by making some watercolored paper using some matte and metallic paints:

The paper is 140lb watercolor paper that I wet with water, added some red, pink, and white paint and then finished it with a splattering of gold metallic watercolor paint.

When you cut out the poppies, you get an outline as well as solid pieces to layer behind the outline.  The solid parts are particularly  nice  because you don't have to paper-piece the petals.  Here is the die along with the cut out pieces:

I cut out extra flowers to make a nice arrangement and then layered on some washi tape.  Here is a hint about the tape- if you layer tapes on top of each other and the top one is a bit too see-through, attach the tape to a strip of white cardstock so that the tape is more opaque and vibrant:

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!
