A country card with beautiful poppies
I've been saying to Brenda at floral fantisies I'm going to make a poppy card for her candy challenge , so here it is at long last. I love poppies, always a beautiful sight growing wild in fields. I have several varieties that pop up in the garden in the strangest of places,the gaps in paving and gravel, always welcome though.
My card card features a Penny Black stamp,aptly named "Poppy Fields". I've coloured with copic markers trying to keep the shades muted. The papers are serif , picnic in the park. The tag is Diary of an Edwardian Lady , free with a craft mag.
The flowers are made using several different floral punches, the petals,2 different size Marianne punches with matching embossers.The black stamen centres are an em punch,very useful one and the leaf are a woodware punch. Bit of red ribbon ,chalk inked edges and some red gems complete the look.
other challenges entered :
