Autumn Thank You

I bought this Penny Black stamp set a while back, but haven't had a chance to use it. With the pretty fall foliage, the poppy stamp was calling me to give it a try. So here it is. My first attempt and I am sure I will use the poppy stamp quite often.

I first stamped the flowers with gray ink on a piece of watercolor card, then colored the flowers using watercolor pencils. I also used gold acrylic paint to add a stripe on the right and used my new gold Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add dots around the flowers. 

Here is a close-up. Those gold dots really sparkle.

I am playing along with the following challenges. Thank you for visiting!

Turquoise & Lilac

This is a happy card I made for a friend. She was always there for me when I needed her help. I am very grateful to have her as my friend.
I never knew Turquoise & Lilac go so well together!! Thanks for the inspiration from the challenge at Less is More this week, I was using the two colors together for the first time to make the watercolor background for the card. It turned out very nice and I am so happy!!
