Dream Valley #89 Flowers

Its time for a new challenge at Dream Valley - the theme is Flowers. You have two weeks to play with us.

I pulled out this lovely Hero Arts poppy stamp from Delicate Blossoms and heat embossed them onto watercolor paper. I wet the paper with water and then colored the poppies with water colors. If the paper is really wet, it gives a nice halo around the flowers. Although I think I need a bot more practice with that technique. 

I still like the outcome! Added the sentiment  - Hero Arts Heart Felt Messages once the card was dry and added some splatters. I rounded one corner - it softens it a bit. And added some Stickles in the center of teh poppies. 

For this challenge we have a wonderful sponsor:
