Blue Poppy..
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, just love this Poppystamp  "Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame & Stencil". makes a quick card.

IMG_3490-crop

I started by cutting 2 of these frames in white card, as I wanted to layer them up, so I could have some depth to the poppies...Rather than our UK traditional red poppies , I love the blue ones.

IMG_3481-crop

I only used to markers to colour ..one blue and green.

IMG_3482-crop

I used a ball tool on the backside of the Poppies, this create`s a nice curve..

IMG_3483-crop

Do the same to the white, then I used thin strips of foam tape around the outer edge, this is to layer them together..in between the Poppy heads I used Pinflaire glue gel..

IMG_3485-crop

I have adhered my layers as shown, the blue layer is one coloured with the marker on the outer edge.

IMG_3489-crop

Poppystamps lovely sentiment stamp, "Springtime Greetings" used Brillance blue ink pad. added a couple of cute Whittle Birds and cream bow..used a permanent black marker to add tiny dots..

Finished card 5.1/2"x 7"..

3/  Using self closing tweezers (You need Tweezers to hold your card! or you`ll get burnt fingers) I have sprinkled Chunky embossing powders the stamped/white embossing powder.

4/  Hold the card with the tweezers and heat from Underneath!!! this way your chunky powder does not blow of! melts into the card.   

3 stamping

5/   I inked this with two blue distress inks...         
6/    spray with water ..

4 die cutting

7/  I die cut together these Poppystamps Double Stitched Rectangle frames.. 8/   as they cut you will get 3 frames to use.

5 stamping
