Poppies That Pop


This card is for my stampin' sister Sandy. She is one of my friends that is not only a stamper, but a multimedia artist. You have friends like that - the ones you don't want to give one of your quickie cards. :o) This one actually did not take very long, but looks like it did. Shhhhh, don't tell Sandy!

To create this little close up scene, I started by stamping poppies images from  Sheena's Paint Fusion Stamp Set - Poppies set  onto black card stock with a VersaMark ink pad. Next, I drew the lines and steams with a watermark pen, sprinkled clear embossing powder and heat set.


I colored and blended each section with pastels. TIP: For areas where you want the color to be very light, lay down white first and then color over it. It brightens the color on the black card stock.


I used a paper towel and small clean eraser to gently wipe off the color when color got onto the embossed lines.  For any areas where I could not remove color, or missed a spot, I used a permanent black marker to fill in.


Shout out: This card was inspired by Donna Downey's October Create Design.  I just love her creativity and energy!
