SOS258 - Watercolored Poppies

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called How Does Your Garden Grow and obviously we want to see flowers, fruits, veg and anything else garden related.
For my card I used stamps from an older Flourishes set called Poppy Patch, stamped the images in water soluble ink and used my aqua painter to pull the colors out for a quick and messy watercolor look. Sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - I is for Ink It Up
Stampotique - all things garden
