Perfect Poppies


I used Poppy Trio by PB for my central image on this card as it is beautiful and very versatile. I think water colouring it gave it a lovely soft look which I struggle to do when using Promarkers. I inked the doily die cut edges and added foam pads to give it a bit of a lift from the background paper. I love the simplicity and the focus is on the lovely poppies. A sentiment and some thin ribbon finished it off and it turned out just as I wanted it.
Now over to the Penny Black and More challenge this month which is  Anything goes. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs from sponsors Penny Black, Crafts U Love and Crafty Ribbons. There is also a chance to be a guest designer. Pop over to the blog for all the details and remember to read the simple rules carefully before entering the challenge. NO Digis allowed.

The soft lilacs you have used give a lovely delicate feel to your pretty card Shirley.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

So beautifully colored Shirley! Love the clean design, you are right, such a gorgeous stamp does not need a lot of extras surrounding it and should be the focal point!
