Painted Poppies

Here’s a simple card.  I made it after seeing this beautiful card.  I just had to have this stamp after seeing this card.   I loved it and pretty much completely copied it using paint.  I like Cheryl’s card much better!

Hope you are having a blissful day! Thanks for stopping by….

Playing with flock

I find flock a little tough to play with.   1) It gets all over everything worse than glitter.  2) I find it hard to get it to stick evenly to a stamped image using a glue pad.  But I also have several jars of it from Martha Stewart so I need to make friends with it or give it away to someone who’s more capable than I am.

I picked up this great stamp from Paper Source that looks enough like poppies that I decided to make some fuzzy poppies.  I’m sharing this not so great card so don’t hold it against me.  I liked the color combo but I am really not liking the flocked poppies.  As I’m writing this I am inclined to get rid of my flock today.  I also distress the edges with weathered wood distress ink….it just looked to harsh without it.  The poppy stems are hand drawn.  Lastly I used the linen impression plate to give the card base some texture.  Anyway…supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Hope you are having a blissful day!  Thanks for stopping by….
