It seems pretty fitting that today’s craft is about water colors because water is an essential part of summer camp!

Let’s begin.

Camp Counselor Francine has prepared a gorgeous project using the Delicate Pretty Poppies stamp set for us to learn from today!

    What a STUNNING card! I’ve always loved that splashed watercolor effect, but never thought to achieve it AFTER the image was colored. Silly me. LOL

    Such an elegant interpretation of this image – thank you so much for sharing this today!

    Such a pretty poppy. Thank you for demonstrating the details on your card, like the wash of color around the poppy and the stem and the way to add splatter. The addition of the sparkle is a great finishing touch.
