A Very Large Poppy

Hi, I have a couple cards to share with you today that are using the
same stamp.  The poppy stamp is from IndiGo Blu and is very large.

The first one I stamped and heat embossed in black on watercolor
paper and then let the water and my Zig Clean Color do the
magic and work together.
The colors look so much brighter in person.  After it was all colored I
hand cut around it and then pop dotted it onto black card stock.  I mounted
the whole thing onto some salmon colored card stock to pick up some of the colors from the poppy.

The second card was also stamped onto watercolor paper and this time heat embossed in gold.  I am not real wild about it embossed in gold as there is so
much detail on this stamp that you just lose some of the definition.

Ths one I colored using Ken Oliver Color Burst powders.   I think I will have to try this again using a different color embossing.  I like to heat emboss when I use
water and watercolor as it somewhat contains the colors when they flow. 
I stamped the birthday wishes then cut them using a Gina Marie die and pop mounted them.

Well thanks for stopping by and checking out my two cards using the same stamp
but with totally different looks.

Both stunning cards Donna, I know what you mean about gold embossing I don't like it for the same reason but to be honest it's not spoilt the card from what I can see this end. Beautiful .
