Color Throwdown Challenge #497

Hello everyone and welcome to another Card Making share! Inspired by this week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors (coral, teal, green and yellow) I created this card using a beautiful poppy stamp set from Stampendous. This floral stamp set is perfect for layered effects.
I decided to heat emboss some white opaque embossing powder from Ranger Inc, on Canson Mixed Media paper. Once it was cool, I colored the images using Arteza clean brush markers, to create a watercolor effect.
I love being able to get messy, and laying down my colors without worrying about transfer or bleeding. That's why heat embossing works so well. It's a carefree approach to watercoloring that's always a hit!
I allowed my paper to dry, while I cut the "mom" die set from Simon Says Stamp using coral and teal colored cardstock, to continue with the theme of the challenge.
I fussy cut all my images, and used dimensional glue dots to adhere them to my card cover. Added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops and the card is finished!
I love these challenges and they're a great way to push your creativity, try something new and have fun!

Happy crafting
Eny Dunn
