Blue Poppy


Hi everyone!  I wanted to make a card using this lovely Penny Black stamp called Poppy Poem.  I've already done it in pink, but this time I wanted to include this gorgeous hand-dyed ribbon from Donna Mikasa.  I'm entering this into the current Penny Black challenge, to use white space as a primary element.  The white panel was dry-embossed with a cuttlebug flourish folder, and then put onto blue cardstock.  The poppy was watercolored and diecut with a nesties label  and edged with some faded jeans distress ink.  The sentiment was stamped with the same ink, and both were popped above the embossed background. 

Supplies: blue and white cardstock, Penny Black 4036K poppy poem, Versafine onyx black ink, watercolor pencils, nesties label four, hand-dyed blue seam binding ribbon, Hero Arts CL173 Simple Messages, faded jeans distress ink, cuttlebug flourish embossing folder

On a happy note, I went shopping today for little baby girl clothes and found some sweet little things in pink and green - had a ball!  We'll be visiting our little granddaughter Alma next week!!!
