Purple Poppies

This was the card I was talking about in yesterday's post. The first idea was to mask the central image and stamp around it....possibly using a script stamp or a background stamp with small details, but this beautiful Memory Box paper is what I decided to go with. It was cut into a frame shape using a Spellbinder's nestability.
The poppy stamp is from the Hugs and Prayers set. There are two poppy stamps, one that is the outline, and one that is a bold image. I stamped the bold image first using olive green, and stamped the outline image on white card stock using purple ink. Colored the outline poppies with copic markers, cut out and layered over the bold image.

off to work....Have a great Monday!
Thanks for coming by :)


  1. Very pretty! I love the way you layered the image and the patterned papers coordinates beautifully with the image.
