Tami's Poppies

I can't seem to stop playing with this Poppy stamp! This is almost a complete case of Tami Hartley's card. I just changed the colors of the flowers, trying to make them look like true California poppies. The text background is digital, an excerpt from The Secret Garden, from Lucy.
Just as Tami did, I stamped the poppies in VersaMark over the printed text, and then used Distress inks to color in the images. The simple message is popped above the surface.

Supplies: CG140 Poppy Background, CL307 SparkleClear Mini Messages, kraft, cream and gold cardstocks, VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress inks, green marker, CH139 Black crystal gemstones
