Gingersnap creations color challenge : Red and black

This is my 4th and last make for august as a Visiting Artist at Gingersnap Creations.
The task for this months color challenge is to make something with the color combo black and red, inspired by the beautiful poppy paintings of Georgia O'Keefe's.

I've used a few techniques on this card.

I've used patternpaper from Maja Design and Bazzill - black

I started with the red background. Inspired by Nathalie and her online workshop I used glimmermist and paper towel on 300g aquarell paper.
I then printet the digital frame from Pam Leforsdesign and image of the poppies from Sketchingstamper on to transparent. 
When the transparent was fastened to the background I colored the poppies with Tim Holtz  alcohol ink - Red Pepper ( first time I used this paint, loved it ).

I then painted the metal corner from Kort og Godt with black Staz On. 
The sentiment is from Norsk stempelblad. 

Wishing everybody a creative and fun week. I'm of playing with my new EcoGreen Acrylic paints, just arrived from Craftbarn England. 
Look at all the yummy colors.
