I started with a piece of watercolor paper and painted it with Gesso. I heat dryed it just to speed up the process. Next I inked up the Pleasant Poppies stamp with black Stazon and stamped it onto the watercolor paper. I mixed white acrylic paint and a few drops of Island Indigo reinker to paint the background. Once the background was all painted and dried, I made more 'reinker paint' with Tangerine Tango (poppies), Always Artichoke (stems and buds), and Early Espresso (center of the poppies). I am happy with the way it turned out.
