- 5" x 5" square white linen card blank
- Penny Black 'Poppy Poem' stamp, stamped using black Archival ink and coloured with Tim Holtz Distress inks. I just touched the markers quite lightly on the petals, buds and leaves then dragged the colour out using a water brush
- the sentiment was stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and stamps from a lovely set by Winnie and Walter called 'the big, the bold and the happy - WW002'. It's thanks to my lovely friend Sarn that I found this great set of stamps - mwah!
- then just rounded the bottom left corner
In case you missed the post, this is the poppy in our garden three weeks ago that inspired the colouring:
Well done Darnell on making your blog such fun and so successful :) Here's to your next 500 followers - and this card was made very much with friends like you in mind - mwah!
Diane, I love your watercolor poppy and the real one in your garden. You really brought yours to life with the watercolors. Awesome job.ReplyDelete
Oh, my heavens, Di, there is close competition on this post between your stunning card and your stunning real life poppy! I have never seen a poppy like that before. It looks like it is handmade with silk and crepe paper!! Back to your card, well done on your design using that bold sediment! I'm seeing W&W bold sediments all over Blogland ... sigh, more for my Mt. NBUS!!ReplyDelete
Thank you for joining a third time to my NBUS Challenge! I am very warmed in my heart by your support!! Mwah! Darnell

Hi Di...it's been a while....sorry. It's just manic here. No moving date as yet but we do seem to be slowly getting there...I'm guessing it will all happen at once in the last week :-)ReplyDelete
Really love the poppy you've used for inspiration and the card you've made....clever you.
I love this pretty poppy card with your delicate colouring.ReplyDelete
Super quick card. I loves poppies. I have a red one in the garden but just checked on it and there are no buds at all so guess it is giving this year a miss. Not my year at the moment.! Hugs Mrs A.ReplyDelete
