Hi everybody. I adore poppies and so this month's CAS Watercolour Card Challenge, run by Loll and Bonnie, is right up my street...lol. I saw this very traditional poppy image by Sheena Douglass from her A Little Bit Sketchy range called Perfect Poppies, and so I just had to get it to use for the challenge and it was really lovely to colour.
I used Candied Apple, Fired Brick, Carved Pumpkin, Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint Distress Inks applied with a waterbrush. I then cut the mat with a Crealies Pierced Rectangle and then on another piece of white card I cut this again using the same size die and one a size smaller to make a frame to place over the top.
I then finished it with a gold embossed sentiment and adhered it to a 7" x 5" white card.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
