Sherry H. here with a card featuring the Arched Poppies and Grassland Border dies, which I used in a slightly different way than normal.
I die cut the Poppies from white card stock, and used the negative as a stencil. I used Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick and Barn Door Distress inks on the flowers, starting with the lightest color, and building the color to a rich reddish-orange. I used Shabby Shutters on the leaves and stem, and shaded the leaves with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I punched a circle on vellum with a 1/8” circle punch, and used that as a stencil to create the random dots. (I used vellum so I could see where to place the dots.) I then used the Memory Box Honeycomb Stencil with Shabby Shutters ink to create a soft background, starting a little darker at the bottom and fading it upwards. I then added some glitter to the flower tops and all of the circles. The grass on the side was one of those happy accidents. Somehow in the mess on my table, my card kind of landed next to the grass in a sideways position, and I liked it! It made kind of a fringy accent to the card. I added a strip of card stock to the left side of the card, and used mounting tape to adhere the whole piece to the base card. The “Thank You” is a Pebbles rub-on that I had in my stash. A very fun and easy card to make! Thanks for stopping by!
