Watercolor Poppies & Brush Lettered Envelope

Happy Wednesday, all! Today I have a watercolored card using the Poppy Blossoms stamp set from Picket Fence, as well as a hand lettered envelope. This card was so fun to paint! And hopefully the walkthrough during the video will give you an idea of how I painted the poppies.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

Watercolor Poppies & Brush Lettered Envelope

I started by drawing a thin lined border 3/4″ inch from the edge of a 5×7 piece of watercolor paper. I did this so I could place the poppy image in the center. Then I stamped and gold heat embossed the bouquet of poppies from the stamp set.

For the gold embossed border, I used a VersaMarker and then applied gold embossing powder.

The flowers were painted using Mijello Mission Gold watercolor paints. Be sure to watch the video above to see the painting process.

I also created a red envelope to go along with the card. I used FineTec metallic watercolors to brush letter Nancy’s address on the envelope.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
