Fabulous Florets Poppy For You

Some more play time. I should be cleaning house, but didn't feel like it just yet today. I got a little ambitious yesterday and tackled the weeds in the strawberry patch. While it looks much better, I'm very sore and sunburned. And, it's not quite done. Maybe later today, if it dries out.

Anyway, on to the stamping. Today I played with the Sketch Challenge at Stampin' Royalty. Here is what I came up with:


based on this sketch:


My card base is Poppy Parade, with another layer of Poppy Parade over that. The main purpose of the 2nd layer was to hide the back of the ribbon. The ribbon is attached at either side of the layer, with a "Mary Brown" bow attached in the center. An Antique Brad is in the center "knot". I used the embossing resist technique with the First Edition DSP (in the Occasions Mini but still available to order). The stems of the Fabulous Florets image were stamped on the DSP in Versamark and embossed with Clear Embossing powder. The flowers were done on scraps of DSP and also embossed. Over the stems I used a sponge dauber to apply Pear Pizzazz ink, and on the flowers, Poppy Parade. A little different look with the layered on flowers-I'm still trying to decide if I like it. The flowers were cut out and attached with a dimensional. 'just for you' from Teeny Tiny Wishes is the greeting at the bottom.

This is awesome, I love it! Love the stamping on the printed paper. Fantastic! The colors are great together, too. The guys managed to kill my big beautiful poppy plant this year...there's one tiny little sprig coming up. Last year it was 2 feet in diameter, at least! I am SOOO disappointed! I loved that plant. The flowers are SO intricate and interesting. I could look at the blooms for hours! ha
LOVE your creation, thanks for the beautiful inspiration.
