Damask Poppies (posted by Judith)

Hi folks, here's another project from me using the lovely new stamp sets just released at Chocolate Baroque; Dusky Damask and Sweet Poppies. I wanted to create a very monochrome feel to this project with just a burst of red from the poppies themselves. I stamped the large background stamp onto white card, reversing it in opposite corners. It's a lovely big stamp, and is great for an 8" x 8" card. I stamped the poppy image onto a long thin oval, and painted it with Distress Stains to give the flowers and leaves a very watery feel.

I made a crinoline flower which I sprayed with Distress re-inker and water to give a bright red colour, and added a black button to the middle.


I'll be back in a few days with another sample. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
