Morning Peeps, time for our new Allsorts challenge and this week Kath would like to see Poppies and/or the colour red, a very fitting theme for Remembrance Sunday tomorrow. We have a lovely Inkylicious Poppy stamp as our prize along with some colouring pencils.
I started out with a card but as it's Poppies had to make another and decided on a little frame. I started by stamping the Poppy which is a Chocolate Baroque stamp and coloured in with sparkle pens, then used a Sweet Poppy stencil to add ears of corn around the Poppies using translucent medium and then sprinkling with two shades of gold ultra fine glitter whilst still wet. When dry I stencilled some brickwork and then fixed into the frame.
My card uses one of my favourite Penny Black Poppy stamps which I repeat stamped inking the stamps with Distress Markers. Using Distress Ink I stencilled some harlequins and a Penny Black sentiment. I know people never believe me, but this style of card is so quick to make, especially using a stamp platform which allows you repeat stamping in different shades of your chosen colours to get depth to the image.
Happy weekend all.
