Devine Umbrellas / Blue Poppies Inspired By #27 with video

Hello and HAPPY Saturday! 
Where did this week fly to?
There is new inspiration at Inspired By All the Little Things #27.
Somehow these umbrellas reminded me of Flowers! Big surprise, HA!!
So, I set to painting a few Poppies for my card today,
 in shades of blue:)))  
Here is a snapshot from a very quick (15 minute) painting session.  
It's been several months since I've practiced painting these and found my skills quite rusty.  I did film the the whole thing; you can watch if you like. I trimmed out the moments of pondering of what to do next....there were many of those:) Otherwise I left the video in real time.

 Here is the finished card using the panel from above.
I LOVE the color combo from the inspiration photo..After cutting the painted panel down, I inked some Twisted Citron Distress on the edges and added a panel of the same shade underneath to give a pop of color. 
The floral die, in the corner, is from Waffle Flower's Lacy Panel die
HELLO word die is from The Ton

Hope this inspired you to play along with us!!
