Hi there, I'm back at work after my week off which isn't good news but its always nice to catch up with everyone isn't it? Todays card features one of the new stamp sheets from Chocolate Baroque called Pretty Poppies. These stamps are so beautiful, with gorgeous images and some really lovely sentiments too.
I've used an 8x8 card blank, red and white card stock for matting and layering and some lace from my stash. The backing paper is from the Decadent Brocade CD
I made the focal image using panpastels and distress markers. I began by creating the background scene with ultramarine blue tint and rubbed out a cloud shape using a pencil eraser. I used paynes grey and tiny bit of yellow and magenta panpastels to give the cloud a bit of dimension. I used torn copier paper to mask off the hills and used shades of green panpastels to create the hills.
As PanPastels can be erased I just stamped the poppies over the background and rubbed out the colour. I used distress markers to add colour to the beautiful poppies.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft a scene: in the garden
Do you stack up: blue sky and clouds
