POPPIES


I love flowers and poppies are among my favourite flowers.

I first stamped the friend definition on white cardstock, then I distress it with Distress Inks, I stamped the poppy stamp with versamark and applied clear embossing powder. I coloured the green stems and I stamped the flowers on Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock. I coloured the poppies with Copic markers.


Stamps: Friend definition, Poppy background (Hero arts)

Ink: Distress Ink (Stormy Sky, Broken China), Tuxedo Black (Memento)

Accessories: Copic markers, dimensional dots, clear embossing power, punch around the page (Martha Stewart), watermelon cardstock (Bazzil), embossing buddy, versamark.

Daffodils

I combined Sweet Corn cardstock (Gina K) with Hawaiian Shores cardstock (Papertrey).
I like this color combo. The daffodils are from Papertrey, I didn't use its original leaves, I think the flowers looked better with the "In bloom" set leaves.

Stamps: A year of flowers: daffodils, Retro Backgrounds, In bloom (Papertrey), Pretty pattern (Cornish Heritage Farms).

Inks: Fresh snow (Papertrey), deep lagoon (versafine), tuxedo black, cantaloupe (Memento).
