Dancing Poppies (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, here's a samples using one of the new clear heart stamps, Poppy Baroque Heart, combined with one of the stamps from the Pretty Poppies unmounted rubber stamp plate.

I make no secret of the fact that I love poppies, so it has been a real pleasure working with these stamps for this sample! I stamped some of the poppies across the bottom of the card, masking the images where necessary. I then coloured the background with Pan Pastels to create a hazy sky effect. I coloured the poppies with Distress Markers, and stamped and decoupaged an extra butterfly. I added a sentiment from the Artistic Expressions stamp plate to complete the background.

I stamped and coloured the poppy heart before glazing it using ultra thick embossing powder.

These poppies certainly help to make me think of warmer days, and chase away those Winter blues! Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  2. I love poppies too Judith and your card is gorgeous. You are so right that it reminds me of the warmer days to come

  3. Very splendid & I love the way the paleness of the PanPastels serves to make the reddish pinkiness of the poppies 'pop'. The gorgeous matting really helps to bring the colours out too & this is definitely one that would work for a man.
