Popping poppiesPosted: April 28, 2009
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.
