Thank you and goodbye

Hello every one! Here is a card that I made using the adorable petunia petals.

PoppyPPThankYou

It always makes me happy to color her! Petunia is colored with Copic markers and I paired her with the Sweetbay collection by Memory. The sentiment Thank You script (B832) is also from Memory Box.

Sadly, this is also my last card as poppystamps design team member. It's been such a treat to work with all the adorable stamps. Thanks to Dave for inviting me to join th team and for being so sweet to work with. Big thank you to all that visits regularly, your comments meant a lot to me. I can't thank you enough for that. =)

Thanks again for stopping by and hope you have a beautiful week! =)

peace tag

Hi all! Here is a tag that I made using the lovely andrew angel.

PoppyAAPeaceTag

I cut the tag out of watercolor paper and inked it with Tumbled Glass distres ink. The background Peace Collage (G1411) from Memory Box is then stamped using the same ink. Andrew angel is colored with Copic markers. I added Star Dust Stickles on the snowflakes on the background as well as on the word "peace."

Hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by!

thank you tag

Hello all! Here is a tag that I made using penoy branch, sakura and tiny sakura with acrylic paint resist.

PoppyPenoyBranchPaintResistTag

I first stamped the sakura and tiny sakura with Ranger's Pearl Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber on the watercolor tag. After the paint dried, I inked the piece with Barn Door and Wild Honey distress inks. I then buffed the piece with a damp papertowel to make the flowers show up better and the paint resisted the ink beautifully. The peony branch is then stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. This technique is from Tim Holtz and is really fun to try. I was too lazy to get out my embossing powder and heat gun, besides the Pearl paint gives a really nice shine. =)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!
