I used an older Rubbernecker red rubber stamp (4 Red Poppies) to come up with this:
I used my MISTI and colored directly onto the stamp with with a combination of SU! and Tombow markers and then spritzed with water to give the water colored look. I also used an Aqua Painter to move the color around a bit and to add the black to the centers of the flowers. I used a PB die (Stitched Square & Circles) to cut out my image, and then sponged the edges with Tea Dye DI before mounting to white & black layers and a white card base. I used SSS's Tiny Words to emboss my sentiment onto a black strip and used foam tape to mount it to my card.
I also have a twofer for you today because I have quite a few Poppy stamps and I just wanted to play! I used an older PTI stamp set called Daydreamer and was inspired by this BEAUTIFUL photo from Marybeth HERE to come up with this card:
I used the same technique as my first card along with some masking to make my little field of orange Poppies and then stamped a sentiment from PTI's Mum's The Word. I also used PTI's Pierced Feature Frames to die cut and stack 4 frames to surround my Poppy layer.
The DT has some FABULOUS inspiration for you, so check it out and then play along with us right HERE. Remember to keep your card CAS, use WATER COLORING, and post your card in our gallery by the 24th...we can't wait to see what YOU come up with!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
