Started with white layering weight cs and sponged black through stencil. Painted white gold on petals and glued glass glitter to centers. Mounted on black fun foam cut slightly larger, then mounted all on square white cs base. Swiped black ink pad for background.
Our poppies won’t bloom till May but sure fun to see them now. Stamped the image with light green then water colored. Stamped again with black. Made the plaid to match at Tartan Maker. Added the black boarder with a marker. Cut sentiment on Silhouette then used glue dots to adhere. Ribbon was leftover from my days when I decorated baskets and made fabric accessories (called it Tokens of Affection).
This is another glossy photo paper with the color burst on the stencil. Stencil is from BrutusMonroe (I am a member of the stencil of the month club). Once I cut the paper to fit on the blue cs with a gap I added sequins and sentiment. The top layer of the sentiment was white but I colored it with the color burst on a block and a water brush. It was not intended to fade from dark to light but I ran out of color and liked the effect. Once dry the clear glossy accents was added.
When I got this new stencil I knew I wanted to use it with my new bright colors of color burst. I put the green and blue color burst on the glass mat and sprayed with water. Laid my new stencil in the ink then that was placed on a piece of glossy photo paper. Gently pulled off the stencil and let the paper dry. Then I laid the clean dry stencil back down and sponged from a yellow ink pad on to the photo paper. Layered this with black and white strip, tag and sentiments all made and cut on the Silhouette. The tag had been run through my laminator with gold foil for just the little bit of bling. It does not show in this photo but the photo paper is really shinny.
Having never done one before, I wanted to give it a whirl. Let the pp do the heavy lifting. Added the Ladybugs, ribbon bow for embellishments. the tag is popped up to hold the card open. I did water color the poppy because it was purple and the challenge called for a pink.
