Pop, pop, poppy

Pop,pop,poppy Heather Telford

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.

    I adore this large purple poppy Heather and was well worth finishing and showing on here. I never tire of them and they are certainly one of my favourite flowers. x

    Heather, I really LOVE the looks of this card. Thank you for sharing with us. I have NOT tried this technique yet but (scaredy cat, me) this gives me inspiration to try it.

    I’ve been there… trying to resurrect the steps to a card long after the fact. I love the intensity of the purple with the softer sage green.
