Poppies


Poppies was one of the new stamp sets revealed in January by Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The image was stamped onto white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.

I framed the image with the Want 2 Scrap (Vintage Fancy Frames) chipboard that I covered with embossing powder.  In order to get the true color of your chosen embossing powder, it is better to cover the chipboard with White embossing powder first.  Then repeat the process with your favorite color.  For this frame I used Caribbean embossing powder.

I also added small dots of Black Ice glitter to the center of the poppy as well as outlining each of the squares.

Seam binding ribbon colored with Distress Stain (Tumbled Glass) adds the finishing touch.

Beautiful card, Anne! Unexpected color combination that really looks beautiful! Those background papers are gorgeous, especially with the black lines. Anne, thanks for the tip about using white EP first - I always painted mine, and had to wait for it to dry LOL The texture on yours would be much prettier! It's a lovely card! hugs, de

Wonderfully done- love the poppy image- beautifully framed in blue. Never have thought of embossing white under EP- will have to give that a go.
