Hi folks, I just love Poppies, they are my favourite flower. I was so pleased to work with the latest stamp release Pretty Poppies from Chocolate Baroque.
I made a background using leaves from a plant called the Plume Poppy, using a technique taught to me by my Design Team mate Elaine. I also pressed some Poppy leaves between two pieces of watercolour paper to create the smaller panel on my card. The leaves create a lovely delicate image, as they are very watery. I simply inked the edges with Memento Ink.
Finally, I stamped the main image, and coloured it with Polychromos pencils, and decoupaged the butterfly. The sentiment is so lovely, and the font is really beautiful. I will be using this a lot.
