Lovely Day ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

I love this stamp called Lovely Day.  It's not too big or too small and fits perfectly on a card front.  When I made this card I hadn't been doing a lot of watercolor at all and missed it so I pulled out this stamp and tried to make the color of the flower similar to Rich Coral just not as dark.  I love the color Rich's perfect for a poppy and when I get the stamp set Wonderful Day I'm sure I'll be using it again even though we're knee deep into fall right now.

I stamped the flowers using Black Licorice, made sure it was dry then got busy coloring the petals in.  I really don't remember what pencils I used.  I just pulled them out, rubbed the color off from the tips using a blender brush with water in it onto one of my blocks and did it with a few different colored pencils until I got the color I liked.  Not sure if you can tell in the pic, but I colored all around the flowers in a pale blue too just to add a little dimension.

The card seemed a little plain so I spritzed it with a bit of Shimmmer Gold Color Splash.  I got it a little darker than planned, but that's the way it goes with color splashes sometimes. lol

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
