A Poppy With Love

Hello there,

When I saw this weeks challenge over at Allsorts, I knew that I had to join in as I absolutely love Poppies.

I made this card a while back for someone who's going through a tough time at the moment and this challenge seemed like the perfect time so share my card with you all, so here it is:


I started by stamping the Inkylicious Watercolour Poppies and then masking them before I created my background.
The background was made by dabbing Distress inks onto my craft mat and then spritzing with water. I then added a little more colour by sponging it directly onto my card. Once I was happy with my background, I then removed the mask and coloured the poppies using Spectrum Noir markers.

Thank you for your visit today and I'll be back with you again soon as we have a new challenge starting on Sunday at Stamping Sensations.  Until then, enjoy the rest of your week and stay happy x
