Pop, pop, poppyPosted: July 1, 2015
I created this panel a very long time ago and then didn’t use it. I think I had a bit of poppy overload earlier in the year so I didn’t feel like turning it into a card. I found it this week in a clean up and decided to add a sentiment and complete the card. All the little white flecks over the poppy indicate that I splattered masking fluid over the paper to begin, then I inked the stamp with distress stains. I am just guessing (‘cos I don’t remember) that I spritzed the stamped image to created the watery and feathery edges. I did let it dry before adding the black lines with a marker over the top of the purple petals. This poppy stamp is quite large so my card is a bit larger than usual also.
Thanks for dropping by.
