Poppy Heart

Hello!  Thank you so much for visiting me!  Today I am sharing a card made with IndigoBlu stamp Poppy Heart - the Dinkie version - I just love it!  Its the first time I have used it!  I am aiming to use all my unused stamps.  It may take sometime!


The stamping is all done with black Versafine embossed with clear powder and water coloured with Distress Inks.  The colours I used are Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Pumice Stone and Peeled Paint.  The main image is stamped, painted and mounted on Spellbinders die cuts and I masked off the strip to do the stamping then painted the strip and did a squiggly line down the sides with a black micron pen for definition.  The swirl is cut using the Daisy die set from Sweet Dixie and I added some black stones for a bit of sparkle.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Artful Times - Poppies
IndigoBlu - Magical Masking
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
A Little Bit Crafty - Clean and Simple

These are all fabulous challenges - definitely worth a visit!

I really appreciate your dropping by and would love it if you would leave a comment!  Thank you so much!  Take Care.  Christine xx

Hi Chris - sorry I am so late in commenting, I do not know where the time has gone. I think I must be asleep half of the day.
Simply beautiful card. Love the way you have incorporated that strip down the side - it works so well with that delightful image. The swirl and the black stones just finish it off perfectly.
Hugs, Neet xx
