Vintage Watermelon Pleasant Poppies ~ FM211

Hello stampers!  This is my last Friday as a guest designer at the Friday Mashup.  What a wonderful group to be a part of!  I am so privileged to have gotten the opportunity to play along with these ladies!  This weeks challenge calls for us to mashup watercoloring with this sketch....

There's soooooo much potential with this sketch!  Soooooo many directions you can go in!  
My direction is vintage, which is one of my favorite styles.  I just love anything done with this {Postcard} stamp and am sorry to see it retire.  I've also been wanting to use my {Pleasant Poppies} again before they go out as well.  

I watercolored the poppies with one of the new In Colors for 2015-17, Watermelon Wonder.  I added in some Cajun Craze and then some Early Espresso for the middle of the poppies.  I also watercolored the background with another new color, Tip Top Taupe.  The basecard is the taupe and the second layer is Watermelon Wonder.  They are very pretty together.  

Check out the rest of the gals' work over at The Friday Mashup!

Thanks for taking a peek!
