Hi, it’s Gaylynn here with another installment of my Watercolor Wednesday series. I have a card with poppy flowers and with distress marker watercolor.
This card background was created using stamping with heat embossing. Then then the flowers were stamped again onto watercolor paper. Color was added using distress marker watercolor.
Sentiment: You’re a whole lot of lovely. Yes, you.

I made a quick video tutorial for this. It includes instructions along the way throughout the video. However, the written process follows.
Poppy Flowers Watercolor Card with Distress Markers
By Gaylynn Martling for Unity’s Watercolor Wednesday
(See also the video tutorial for this project.)
Begin by stamping a background with VersaMark and heat embossing the flower stamping.
Then on watercolor paper, stamp the flowers again using waterproof ink like Ranger Archival ink.
For watercolor, I used distress markers for outlines. Then I used a water brush to blend out the color on the flowers.
I prefer to pick up drops of water for the water brush rather than squeeze the tube. It gives me more control.
Repeat the outlines and blending for each petal and flower. Heat set.
Assemble the card layers and add embellishments to finish.
Here is another look.
