Watercolored Poppies – by Heidi Blankenship

WOW!!! Today’s watercolored creation by Heidi is a true show stopper! The intense color on these beautiful embossed poppies truly jumps right off the page at you – off the page and into your heart. And Heidi shows us how she created these beauties so you can try one, too. Take a look:

This is one of those creations that I just can’t turn my eyes away from.

The poppies are dry embossed onto watercolor paper. Heidi then used Distress Inks to watercolor.

And as a matter of contrast, I wanted to pull up this card that Deb created a while back.

This is using the embossing folder in what we would consider the “typical” fashion.

Deb used the same embossing folder as Heidi used today – Poppy Field.

Each card is equally as lovely, but as different as can be.

Take a look at your embossing folders in a little different light!
