CAS Watercolour Challenge

Good morning...
Two posts in two days? Well I had time to play yesterday so I made a few cards, One of which is for 

Marcia is hosting this month's challenge and she has chosen Red & Pink for the month of 'love'

 If you follow my blog you'll see that I hardly ever use pink, I like using red for flowers but I'm not good with pink for some reason, but... I had a go

I stamped a poppy onto ordinary cardstock and embossed it with a mix of silver and gold embossing powder - The stamp is an old one by Altenew and really doesn't have many lines to it...

So I painted it with Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries DI in an attempt to 'define' the poppy... Not sure if I succeeded that well... 
 I used a rectangle die to cut around the image first, then turned it to get a diagonal shape on the bottom part. The sentiment is part of a set of 4 dies I picked up at The Works a while ago and after cutting it I covered it with Versamark ink and then embossed it too. 
So there... I've tried pink Lol! 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back soon
