Poppy Thanks a Bunch

 The Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today is "Memories". To think of something from the past, think of a previous technique that you loved, or a card from your past that you would like to revisit, which is my choice. 

This is the card I decided to revisit, which I did in October 2015 and is appropriately named "Go After Your Dreams".
Back in September 2015 I was what I call a "WW" a wannabe watercolourist. After much self debate I decided to enrol for some classes locally. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, for several reasons. It is a fun class, my teacher is amazing, and the rest of the ladies in the group are such fun. Yes, I continue with classes to this day, and yes I continue to learn.
 On to my 2018 card. I am using the same stamp by Penny Black called Poppy Time. I did not stamp it per say, I coloured the stamp  with my watercolours to get the outline. I then proceeded to add about 4 layers of watercolour drying in between each layer.
 I dragged some of the paint from the flower down, which I also did along the stem . I wanted the look to be a bit loose. I die cut the panel with my wonky rectangle die and in my mini Misti I stamped the sentiment using black ink.
To finish, I splattered with a dark blue and white acrylic paint, and had a sneeze in the process - oops, those long lines were not intended, but I like them as it turns out. For dimension, I attached the panel to a dark blue card base using fun foam and Scor-Pal tape.

Thank you for visiting today. I do hope you have enjoyed this card.
