Christine Costello - Poppies

Christine Costello usine Poppy Meadow Stamp Set from INDIGO BLU

Canvas Panel 8x8
Painted background with blue acrylic, bottom edged with poppy border stamped onto tissue and adhered with PVA.  Two poppy panels were added along with three word panels, a tiny bee stamp (Lavinia Stamps) to fill in a few gaps in the background.  The panel was edged in Aged Gold embossing powder and eyelets made to thread ribbon through to hang the panel.

Card One
The background was coloured with distress ink, Wild Honey and enbossed with butterflies.  Poppies and images all stamped with Memento Ink and coloured with Pro-marker, a little distress stickles in Fired Brick added for effect.  An additional layer of poppy heads was used for dimension.  Word and image panels edged with Wild Honey.  The girl image is an old stamp - Creative Expressions.

Card Two
I stamped two of the large poppies using masking technique and added smaller poppy coloured with my favourite Pro-markers.  Glossy accents was used to enhance the stamens and the background colour brushed in with Adirondacks Stonewash Colour.  Using Woodware Punch system a border was made for the bottom and red ribbon threaded through.  The black butterfly was added for dimension.  The card background was the poppy heads stamped in black and only one coloured red for effect.
