Precious Poppies

Welcome, and thanks again for visiting.

I received some happy mail from Sweet n Sassy stamps earlier this week, and just had to play - this is the outcome.


I used the large image from the Perfect Poppies set, white embossed it on red card, then painted it with Iridescent Red  Twinkling H2O paint.


which can just been seen in the above photograph.



I used a twist on the sketch I had seen, and added the lace on the right side of the card after changing the lace from white to off white by sponging it with Tea Stain distress ink.  I also embossed the cream layer with a script  folder.


The sentiment was stamped with Barn Door distress ink before I embossed the panel, and I deliberately left it clear of the embossing folder.


Deep red pearls were added for interest, and the poppy image stamped inside the card as a finishing detail.

Thank you for visiting - and I really appreciate all comments left.

May your day be blessed

  24. A beautiful card Maxine. The suit you sent Nicholas almost fits him and will be perfect for this winter. He is 10 kg and yes very chubby and soft to cuddle. He still has lots of breast milk and hasn't started walking yet. I am glad your grandson is doing so well. They bring so much joy don't they! Xxx
