Timeless Poppies

 I recently indulged in some more Daniel Smith Watercolour Paints and I'm totally in love with the pinks! So I pulled out my paints, my Baohong w/c paper and fave brushes and had a play.

I stamped with Delicata Gold Ink and embossed with Antique Linen Distress Embossing Glaze.
This is the second attempt.  I didn't emboss the first time around, but I got impatient waiting for the paint to dry and so I started again. The embossed lines allowed me to paint more petals without waiting.
I fussy cut the image , layered it over the die-cut panel and splattered with Altenew Metallic Paint. To finish I added the sentiment, sequins and mounted on the textured kraft coloured card.
