Cynthia has challenged us to use poppies this week, and this is the first of my efforts (at least, I hope I can finish the second improved version!)
The stamp is a very old one from Funstamps, stamped in black memento ink and coloured with promarkers. I used a post-it note mask, and stamped the grasses stamp from Chocolate Baroque several times in varying DI green inks before sponging some shabby shutters over the bottom of the card. and pink, purple and blue inks over the sky to try to give a sunset effect.
I cut it out with a Sizzix topnote die, trimmed it down and mounted in onto a gold card using the same die. The backing paper is from the Essence of nature cd (Chocolate Baroque), so making this card eligible for the CD Sunday challenge as well
