Watercolor Poppies

Boy do I have a bunch of birthdays right here at the end of the month so I am busy making Birthday cards. This one I wanted to share because I had lots of fun making it. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and some versa mark ink. I stamped my image and then embossed it with some vintage embossing powder, next I masked off the image with some rubber cement allowed it to dry and then wet the entire paper and used Melon Mambo re inker to make my background.  I also used my go to set from Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge and then spritzed some gold color shine on it as well.
The "happy" die I used some gold foil from Stampin Up to cut it out and then stamped my greeting underneath.

I am entering this one in the Fusion challenge for Shiny Pink and I sorta followed the sketch.
