CAS Watercolor Challenge: Unity Stamps Poppies

I saw the April CAS Watercolor challenge was Poppy.  I have been water coloring more and I remembered this humongous poppy from Unity I have.  I have been using my Spectrum Noir Aqua markers more, I thought most were used up, but I was happily surprised to see that once I sorted through them that I really still have a ton of colors.  I do need to replace my blues.  

Main Ingredients:
Unity Donna Downey Poppy Stamps (Rubber Cling), Unity Lisa Arana Blossoming Thoughts & Wishes (Rubber Cling)
Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Amber, Begonia, SUnflower, Meadow, Bud Green
Le Pen Black Fineliner
Pentel Signo White Gel Pen
Canson Illustration Paper 

Lately I haven't been creating very much.  Truth is, I've been very under the weather since November and last night I had my Tonsils removed.  I have a stress condition and it elevated to extreme acid reflux.  I thought it was just congestion from a lingering cold. Anyway, it aggravated my tonsils to the point of ulceration and they got so inflamed that the swelling never went down.  I was prescribed 3 different rounds of different antibiotics, and after a follow up visit with a specialist, I was told they need to come out.  So here I sit in pain, trying to create to take my mind off it.  Hope your Easter weekend is better!

So sorry you've been ill. Saying a little prayer for your quick recovery. I can empathize, though, I also had my tonsils removed as an adult; it sucked. Hope you bounce back quickly!
