Hello, it’s Marika here today to share with you two cards made with Painted Poppy stamp set. Both of them are watercolored – one with Distress Inks and the other with traditional watercolours. Thank so much for your feedback and requests for video tutorials, it was so much easier to start working with these when I knew what you wanted to see. This time I filmed the card made with traditional watercolours but the same technique works well also with distress inks.

Here is the video if you like to see how this card came together:


I believe this stamp set is wonderful with watercolours since it gives you the choice to go for very loose and artistic look or for more detailed look, just what is in your style or preference at the time. I went for more artistic look with Distress Inks and didn’t add details as much as in the first one.
