Virginia is having a challenge over on the Lily Pad blog,
creating a card based on inspiration from this photo:
I love poppies, and I adore this photo, but I struggled doing it justice! The only poppy-stamp I own is the poppy background from Hero Arts, but sadly we're not the best of friends... Don't get me wrong, the image is gorgeous, and I've seen som many gorgeous creations with it, but I can't seem to grab the essence of it, without doing a COPY of someone else's work - and we don't want that, right??
So, this is what I ended up with:
I keep coming back to this stamp, the Large Bold Flower (CG248), it is so versatile! And you know me by now: keep it simple! So, I colored the flower stamp using Memento markers Lady Bug and Rhubarb Stalk, misted with water+PerfectPearls, and stamped on to snow cardstock. I used my xacto knife to cut just below the flower, so that I could secure the ribbon/stem on the back of the panel. Lots of rich, red pearls and gems in the center of the flower.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a great Sunday!
