Hi, Claire here with the first on my samples using the newly launched Pretty Poppies stamps, I'm sure you're going to love these stamps as it has the most beautiful images and sentiments.
I've used an 8x8 card blank, red and white card stock for matting and layering and some lace from my stash. The backing paper is from the Decadent Brocade CD
I made the focal image using panpastels and distress markers. I began by creating the background scene with ultramarine blue tint and rubbed out a cloud shape using a pencil eraser. I used paynes grey and tiny bit of yellow and magenta panpastels to give the cloud a bit of dimension. I used torn copier paper to mask off the hills and used shades of green panpastels to create the hills.
As PanPastels can be erased I just stamped the poppies over the background and rubbed out the colour. I used distress markers to add colour to the beautiful poppies.
Don't forget to keep checking back as all the team have come up with some really beautiful projects with the new stamps.
Thanks for popping by
