Pretty Poppy by Debbie

The weather this morning is certainly taking a turn here in the UK. The rain is pouring down the windows and the wind is howling through the gaps in the open windows. I needed to run out and rescue our garden parasol as it was on it's way into our neighbours garden. The gardens certainly need the rain but I hope there is still plenty of colour left when the weather settles. My card has one of my favourite flowers on, I love to see poppies spread across the fields growing wherever they seed.
The poppy is stamped with black ink and embossed with clear powder and coloured with alcohol pens. I usually trim around the stamped image and end up with a square or rectangle so to be a little different, drew a circle and cut it out. A little Antique Linen around the edges helps separate it from the doily behind. For the background I used red paper and kraft card to tie in with the main image. The current stamp of the week is the Carousel Horses and while moving furniture around the house I saw a project I made some time ago, it was hidden behind a vase. The first photograph is of the diorama I made and the second a sample card using the horses.
Many thanks for stopping by Debbie

  1. I love the way you've echoed the round doily & image panel with your rounded right top corner. the kraft looks beautiful with the Antique Linen & the colours of the poppy. Your final carousel horse looks brilliant with the way those ribbons echo the streamers from the pole too.
