Popping poppies


Ever since I got this beautiful poppy set I have been planning to stamp it in a single colour.   Red seemed an obvious choice.  I arranged my poppies across the white rectangle and then matted them but felt that I wanted something more, but only a little something.  I decided to emboss the poppies on the background white in white embossing powder, a technique I saw on this beautiful card made by Jak Heath.  I’m afraid I have not been able to capture the effect very well with my camera, but trust me, there are white poppies embossed at the top and bottom of the card!  I added a bit of that sweet gingham ribbon and that was it,  a simpler and faster treatment for the poppy patch stamps.

Thanks for dropping in.

  5. The red and white is striking, but clean and cheerful. I like this look for the poppies. I always love white on white embossing, too. And that gingham ribbon — perfect. I just love the whole package!
