Hello and welcome
It’s time for our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday Challenge Artists’ Club.
This week Heidi is our hostess for our “All About Occasions” Challenge.
For my card, I played with a new Poppy stamp from Gina K Design set – ‘Through Thick and Thin’. I just love poppies and have always enjoyed painting them.
I started with a panel cut using Cutplorations – Wonky Rectangle Dies.
The base painting used a combination of Tombow Pens and Distress Ink markers. When dried, I repainted with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder – Lava Red. This gives the flower a lovely shimmery, metallic look.
I used Ranger Copper Embossing Powder to heat emboss the flower centre and sentiment from Honey Bee ‘Smile’ stamp set. I love this sentiment for a special birthday card.
This picture shows the lovely shimmer a little better (I hope!) So pretty IRL!
Thanks so much for visiting. Please head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the Design Team. I look forward to seeing your take on the challenge!
I hope you can enjoy some crafting time
