Watercolor Pleasant Poppies-Nacho Average Color Challenge #136

We have a spring-themed color challenge this week over at the Nacho Average site: Hello Honey, Bermuda Bay and Strawberry Slush.

Here is my contribution:

Pleasant Poppies 033

 This color combination reminded me of a field of poppies on a warm spring day!  So, I created my own little spring-themed watercolor landscape.  I first stamped the image from Pleasant Poppies onto watercolor paper using white craft ink.  I then heat embossed the image using white embossing powder.  Now for the fun part!  I watercolored the poppies and background using the challenge colors, picking up each color from my stamp pads with an Aqua Painter.  Once the watercolor paper dried completely, I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Strawberry Slush ink. 

Happy Spring!
