This card is for my stampin' sister Sandy. She is one of my friends that is not only a stamper, but a multimedia artist. You have friends like that - the ones you don't want to give one of your "quickie cards" to. This one actually did not take very long, but looks like it did. Shhhhhhh, don't tell!
To create this little close up scene, I started by stamping poppies images from Sheena's Paint Fusion Stamp Set - Poppies set onto black card stock with a VersaMark ink pad. Next, I drew the lines and stems with a watermark pen, sprinkled clear embossing powder and heat set.
I colored and blended each section with pastels. TIP: For areas where you want the color to be very light, lay down white first and then color over it. It brightens the color on the black card stock.
I used a paper towel and a small, clean eraser to gently wipe off the color when color got onto the embossed lines. For any areas where I could not remove color, or missed a spot, I used a permanent black marker to fill in.
Shout out: This card was inspired by Donna Downey's October Create Design. I just love her creativity and energy!
Thanks for visiting!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
