Poppies with Love


Hi, I've used this poppy die from Memory Box a few times, but mainly for sympathy cards.
This time I separated the flowers and put the bud on the other side to create a bouquet.

I cut the flower tops from snippets of watercolor paper and coloured them with Inktense pencils. I'm still getting used to using them so my blending and shading needs a bit more work. I'm going to visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, I hear there's going to be some fireworks, I hope I'm not too late!

I'm also entering  Addicted to CAS the code word is die cuts.

Materials used: Tulip border embossing folder; Memory Box Prim Poppies and Primo Label dies; Inktense pencils; ribbon & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  13. I've been noticing that embossed frame around a lot these days. It might be because I think I need it! Great simple and sweet card.
