Let's Color Linky Party 12

Hello and welcome to the September Let's Color Linky Party, where anything  colored (by you) goes!
It was great seeing so many of you join in again last month, lots of wonderful entries! Be sure to scroll down to see if your creation is being featured below!

For today I inked up one of my  new Penny Black stamps - Poppy Gems, and if you're interested in this stamp, check out my etsy shop, I have just added some new stamps and a couple
Christmas dies, simply click on the Etsy Mini in my sidebar. 

For today I decided to play with my zig clean color brush pens, they have been neglected for a long time, but I thought these poppies would look great watercolored. I really need more water color practice! I went for a bit of a messy look and added some random watercolor spots and used greens and blues around the flowers. Decided to stamp some random words onto the background too using antique linen distress ink and a clear stamp from Whimsy Stamps. The sentiment was stamped using versafine onyx ink and is from the Penny Black set "Heartfelt".
Finished the card off by layering onto black card stock , did some machine sewing and then I used a light green card base. Oh, and I used Winsor & Newton watercolor marker paper (my favorite to use for watercolor techniques using markers) for the poppies, which were stamped in versafine onyx ink. 

Now onto the top choices, it's always so hard to choose favorites from all the beautiful entries, but as always I managed and here are the top picks in no particular order. Each one very different from the other, and each one gorgeous!

Please note, I always try to comment on all your entries, if you haven't heard from me then it's most likely because your blog requires google plus or it's listed in a gallery that I am not a member of.

Wow! It looks amazing. I love the random words and the water color look. I love poppies. They are one of my favorite flowers. I wish they bloomed longer though.
