Red is the colour.........
As far back as I can remember the colour red has been a favourite of mine, I love the warmth it radiates & I always feel good when I wear it too. As for flowers, I adore poppies.........so what better combination of my two favourites is this ickle poppy card I made.
I used a stamp set from a qvc kit my mum bought me, it was a cute mock crock handbag containing a whole host of stamps & a cd rom of backing papers.........however for this card I decided to use the poppy flower head as my backing & stamped it several times with Brilliance Rocket Red ink, I also stamped a few more poppy heads & mounted them to create a decoupage effect & inked around the focal image with colourbox chalk inks. The poppies were coloured using my promarkers.
To finish the card off I used a red matt & stamped "with love" and there you have it!!! Hope you like my card & return for again to see what goodies I've been playing with - Thanks for visiting. Love 'n' Hugs
