Blue Poppies!

Hi All,

I'm off to GNP show at Harrogate tomorrow with my friend Diane, soooooooo looking forward to it!
Planning what I 'need' to buy has made me  think about the stamps that have been neglected lately!
This Hero Arts Poppy stamp is one, I suppose because I think of Poppies in the Summer  - so decided that was to change.  I stamped  in Black Versamark and clear embossed onto some white card and then twice again onto some hand made paper (thats the reason for the orange speck on the large flower).  I cut the flowers out and and some extra petals which were fixed with 3D foam pads. Shaded with Promarkers and Blender pen to give some depth.

The card base is inked with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks.
The challenge this week at Make My Monday is Mothers Day/ Thank You Cards, and although my  card is 'Just to Say' the Thank You will be written in the card.

I am also entering this card in:
  Papercrafting Journey - Pretty Pastels
  Fairy Fun Fridays - Distress It
  Our Craft Lounge - Pretty Petals
  The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
  Partytime Tuesdays - Monochromatic
  Creative Mondays - Anything Goes

That's it for tonight, need to be up early in the morning - but will I sleep or will I be dreaming of ...........Harrogate!

Hope you have a lovely time in Harrogate Avril. I've only been there once and it was very cold!
Gorgeous poppy card too - such delicate colouring. I've never tried a promarker but they do look good here.
