Field of Poppies

Posted in Just Because at 6:02 pm by happygiggles

At first I wasn’t sure I really liked how this card turned out but now, I’m quite pleased!  This was the card I made for the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast.  The featured stamper this week was Laura of Scrapnextras.  I actually found it easy this time around to chose one card to case.  But only because I had been admiring this card of hers!  All her cards are fabulous!

I started this card with a base of River Rock, then layered on some Ruby Red that I first stamped with the Delight in Life background stamp.  I stamped all the poppies from Oh, So lovely in black Staz on ink then colored them in using an orange water colour pencil.  I outlined each flower with a red water colour pencil to add a bit of zip.  The larger poppies all have a bit of Stickles added.  The sentiment is a SU! rub on that I liked.  since I don’t have anything to punch ovals, I used my corner rounder and a pair of scissors.  Now on my list is an oval punch!

Thanks for looking!
