Single Poppy Card

Good morning.

Sorry, there seems to be a bit of a theme developing here but I do love poppies, they are my favourite flower.

Again this was a stamped design from Sheens Douglass over painted with one stroke painting techniques. The white card was innked with 3 different colours of green distress ink which was sprinkled with water and some of the ink lifted off to give a speckled effect.

The image was matted and layered onto an A5 white base card. The largest mat was white card sprayed with mica sprays to give a nice bit of shimmer.

For the embellishment I use a piece of flower shaped ribbon with flat backed crystals and pearls for the flower centres. It is quite a simple card but I think it looks quite striking.

Two Poppies

Good morning.

Here is a new card with my favourite poppies. The centre piece is the one stroke technique poppies based around stamped images from Sheena Douglass. They were painted with acrylic paints.

The background card was made by spraying white card with various tones of mica sprays. Once this was dry it was stamped with leaves from another Sheena stamp.

The base card is A5 in size and the same colour green card was used to make the layers along with one mat of satin copper card. Copper was used to compliment the copper embossing powder used around the edge of the image.

As a finshing touch vintage style lace was mounted with double sided tape and topped off with satin ribbon and a bow.

A New Card

Amazing. At long last I have found some time to actually make some cards. I have had a lovely morning crafting away.

I am not sure about this stamp, it is either a lovely image or quite scary! I am not sure which. The stamp is from a set from Creative Expressions.

The base card is navy blue double sided pearlescent card as it eh mount for the stamped image. The background was painted with mica pants which were allowed to run and puddle. The background for the image was smililarly made but the paint was sprayed onto a non-stick craftinh mat and the card dabbed onto it.

The large button under the two flowers was made with Fimo, stamped to get texture, wiped over with mica powder before being backed to set the clay.

The two flowers were part of a prize from a card challenge.
