Stenciled and pencil colored Poppy

Hello friends, today I am sharing a card using Altenew Poppy Stencil on black.

I first ink up the poppy with white pigment followed by the colored inks, you can see in the picture.

Then the coloring of it began, the leaves have 4 layers of various colors to achieve the look and the poppy have about 6 layers colors, I have kept the color pale and it is not very easy to achieve this color on black, my last card on where I have used bright tones were easier than this.

Once the coloring was done, I added dashes or stitches using a sakura gelly roll, The center is done using brown , green and I used a black pen to draw the details. I dont know if you can see, but there is a black jewel in the center. 
The sentiment is also from Altenew, I used Vintage photo distress oxide to swipe on a white card strip to create that aged look, then stamped the sentiment, and added it with a foam adhesive.
The base sides are edged with the 2 distress oxides I used for the leaves.

  3. Rahmat, this is one beautiful card, the flower looks gorgeous against the black, textured background.
    I just have a few stencils but your idea of coloring the image with pencils after you sponged it is brilliant, I must try that!!
