Creative Coloring with Erum: Paint-A-Flower: Poppy

by Erum Tasneem

Hello friends! Erum here with a new watercolor card to share featuring the new Paint-A-Flower: Poppy Stamp Set.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Poppy Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by stamping the image a couple of times in Clear Embossing Ink off the edge and then heat set it in Pure White Embossing Powder. Next, I wet the petal with a water brush and directly applied pigment with Ruby Red Watercolor Brush Marker. I will keep the color diluted towards the tip of the petal. And I also added a bit of Citrus Burst Watercolor pigment.

For the green bits, I laid down the first layer of Limeade Watercolor pigment and then added the darker pigment from Emerald Watercolor Brush Marker. For the background, I used the Turquoise Watercolor Brush Marker.

Once I colored the background and it was dry, I added splatters of clear water and then sopped them with a tissue paper. This resulted in a beautiful texture. To add more interest to the background, I added splatters of white and black paint as well.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and popped it up.

I SO enjoyed your video! A few things I most appreciated was not speeding up the video, so that I felt like I understood your process. Your honesty and sense of humor while creating your gorgeous flowers, made for a fabulous video all around. Thanks so much! ❤️❤️
