Roses & Poppies

poppies Heather Telford

Poppies and roses feature (of course) in the latest release from Penny Black. Poppies are a favourite flower of mine but then so are roses and tulips and of course daffodils and I can’t forget sweet little pansies or gorgeous blue cornflowers.   The poppies above have a matching die. I once again stamped in watersoluble brown ink so I could blend it with the pink and green stains I painted into the outline image.

The roses are from a transparent set, Gentle Day, which includes a couple more flowers, a bird/flower collage and a few sentiments. Make sure you take a moment to enter the give away on the Penny Black blog before it ends on February 28th.; you could pick up some of these new flowers for yourself.

Thanks for dropping in today. Do you have a favourite flower? Do you have one you love as a fresh flower but a different one you like to stamp or paint?

    Beautiful flower cards Heather!!! My favorite flower is the cymbidium orchid…because they are delicate, come in many colors, and last a long time in the house. Any and every flower pleases my eyes – even some of the ‘weeds’ – LOL!
    Thank you for sharing your talent!
    Paper Hugs,

    These are fabulous Heather and all flowers are naturally beautiful but I particularly love poppies en masse and beautiful blousy roses. Personally I much prefer to see flowers growing than in a vase because as soon as they are cut they start to die which I think is sad. x
