Orange Poppy Card


The A/C had to go back on! We are once again experiencing hot and humid weather. This has been such a strange summer weather wise. Oh well, it’s better than cold and snow! I am so not a winter person.



I love flowers; especially poppies; and I love colouring them. In fact I just bought two new Power Poppy stamp sets from the clearance rack at our local scrapbooking store – Whoot! Whoot! But I don’t have them coloured yet. The one on this card was a free download from the Internet.




I love orange poppies so I coloured it orange using coloured pencils and blended with gamsol. The blue is chalk that was sponged on. I also happen to have a lot of this orangy-yellowish paper from a thrift store find so it worked really well with this coloured poppy. The poppy was mounted on black; then the striped paper; then the orange paper; and then a yellow card base. I used the Spellbinder label die set to die cut a black label; stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and then heat set it with white embossing powder. The ribbon is from the stash. I think this made a cheerful card for someone not feeling well.



That’s all for a hot and humid Friday, July 28, 2017…..which happens to be one of my daughter’s birthday….and a cousin’s birthday! …..okay, second cousin actually but we are only a year apart so we decided to say cousins. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and remember to be kind, always.

Cheers
