We Will Remember Them (by Asha)

Good morning, friends! We are almost at the end of October and while a Halloween project would be the obvious choice, I decided to hop off the bandwagon and pursue a different theme. Looking ahead to November, I decided to play with the Pretty Poppies stamp sheet to create a Remembrance Day inspired page.

It's a simple page, no unnecessary embellishments, textures or distractions. Just a field of red poppies against a clear blue sky. A telling contrast... lest we forget the price of peace.

I used acrylic paints for the background and stamped the poppies directly on the page with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I coloured the stems and leaves with alcohol markers. Then I stamped the poppies and buds separately, coloured and fussy cut them before adhering them to the page.

As always, I have details of the tools and products used on my blog. Thank you for stopping by and drop in soon for more designs by the team.
