Blue Poppies

Evening All,

It has been ages since I posted on my own blog, and even longer since I posted here on the Hobby Art blog. Life just seems to have got in the way recently lol.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago a fabulous new stamp set dropped onto my mat from Jenny, the October Stamp of the Month Poppy Heads.

I love poppies and this is no exception.

As luck would have it I had some pieces of Gelli Plate background on my desk and so I decided that I would use one of them as the base for my card. As it was blue I thought it would get away from the usual red poppies for a change.

This fabulous set comes with a text background stamp which I used randomly on my piece of handmade background paper.

I stamped and embossed the stems and leaves on to the bottom of the panel,

and then coloured them in using Spectrum Noir Alcohol pens.

I didn’t want to have to do any masking so I stamped and embossed the poppy flowers onto some gingham background paper from my stash and then fussy cut them out.

I added some extra colour with Distress Ink and Black Wink of Stella and attached them using silicon to add a little depth.

The background to the card has been created by stamping and embossing the text randomly onto a piece of matching blue cardstock from my stash.

Hope you like it.
