Thank you Cindy for contacting me - you can visit her blog here, to see some of Cindy's wonderful creative work.
Blue Poppies - yes they exist in my card making world!
I am generally
very "true to life" in my colouring, so this is a bit of an exception - it started as I went to use this die, and discovered several die cuts from previous projects, including this watercoloured one from a previous project.
I had intended to simply emboss the edges of my panel, but was chatting on the phone while I was crafting, and ended up cutting it... then I left the studio with the pieces on my desk
I returned next day, and loved that the white panel was sitting at an angle on the blue base, so trimmed the rectangle slightly smaller and went with that... I had to 'stretch' the die initially as the USA sizes are smaller than our (Birtish based) paper sizes
I used my vertical sentiment stamp this time, and used one colour from a blue kaleidoscope ink pad.
The feature panel was layered over 'cereal box' cardboard to give a wee bit of dimension.
I finished the inside with some sparkly washi tape, and the camera focused on that only :(
