Get Well Poppies

Hi, back again with another card.

I had carpal tunnel surgery so my hand was a bit sore
but I thought I would take a crack at trying to color with 
watercolors as they do not require pressure.
So using the sketch this week at Mojo Monday I create
this card.
 I stamped the poppies with a Mark's Finest stamp that I got a few
years ago, in fact, I don't think it is available anymore.  I love poppies, I think they are my favorite flowers.  I am pleased with how this turned out, the water coloring was pretty easy to do.  I wish you could see it in person as it
sparkles because I put Wink of Stella over the flowers.
The papers are from a K&Company pack and the get well soon is
a Hero Arts stamp, that I stamped with Distress ink Forest Moss.
The whole flower panel I have popped using Darcie fun foam.  I love that
stuff for popping things on cards.  Thanks, Crafting Circle for telling me about
it, it is super cheap and you get a lot in the package.  I have found that my 
ATG tape gun works great for adhering it. 
I hope you enjoy my card, have a great weekend.

Wow watercoloring and carpal just don't sound like they go together LOL. But what a beautiful job. Best wishes as you continue to heal. Thanks for joining us at The House that Stamps Built this week. Shirley H.
