Pleasant Poppies!

So with some of the craziness in the Lala household finally coming down I’m finally getting back into the swing of things and was able to get down to the Craft cave and do some crafting!  I was checking the Freshly Made Sketches the other day and when I saw  Sketch #46 the first thing that popped into my head was – Poppies!   So here’s the sketch!

And here’s the card I came up with!

I planted poppies this spring and loved the orange colors.  When I saw the Pleasant Poppy stamp I knew I had to get it.  I couldn’t resist using some summer colors – Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade.  I colored the flowers themself with the Calypso Coral, then used a blender pen to remove the ink from the center of the flowers and from any of the stems because I wanted them to be green.  I then used the blender pen to add the colors from the ink pad to the stamp.  I love how the colors seemed to blend together naturally.

I struggled on what color to use as the background, but I thought the Calypso Coral would really pull out the colors on the flowers.  I used a Recollection flower border punch on the Daffodil Delight cardstock and topped it off with the Lucky Limeade.

I think it’s a simple and cute card.  Hope you have a Magical Day!
