Blue Poppies


Still playing with this beautiful Poppy Background stamp. Again, it is clear stamped and white embossed over a polished stone background that was made with blues and purples. Then I went back in with markers to color the stems, pods, and add some more shading to the flowers. I was astounded to find out that there actually are blue poppies! They come from the Himalayas.

Supplies: CG140 Poppy Background, AR137 Script Messages, Martha Stewart doily punch, pearls, BoBunny pale blue dotted cardstock, white cardstock, VersaMark and Versafine Onyx Black ink, white embossing powder, green and periwinkle markers

    You simply must do a tutorial on this technique, Lin! I can't get my stamp to stamp smoothly--there's always blotches! It must be me....
    Can't wait to see what you do with the new stamps coming out!

    Love the new header, too! You have a great eye for arranging your "stuff" to make the perfect setting. I may have to try my hand at it for my blog, but I'm sure it won't look as great as yours!
