California Poppy
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there and welcome to the Spring Line Poppystamps Blog Blitz. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to win this beautiful Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame and Stencil from Poppystamps 


This past Friday I went to visit the nearby hills on fire with blooms of wild California Poppies!  It was amazing , so glad I went as it only last a bit. This was in the Hills near Temecula.


I left everything in tact then placed my stencil on top and began to use my watercolor Zeg pens to color the poppies.



After I was done I added a bit of shimmer. Then stamped the sentiment using Poppystamps : Picnic Plaid clear stamp set.



The die and stencil are both included with the die and could be your prize.

Thought I would share a few more of the wild Golden Poppies that are also the California state flower.

I am from California, but I don't think that I am a huge fan of California Poppies just because of that. I LOVE THEM!!!!! They don't last long, can NOT be transplanted (I have tried and tried), but they make me happy, and make me want to go on a road trip/camping trip up north. Thank you for your project--I just love it!!!!!!!!

You captured the color and feel of the Poppies. I like to see them by the side of the road, and on the freeways here. Great job.

How beautiful, Marybeth, I love the photos and your gorgeous card inspired by them!
