IC over on Splitcoast -- Cost Plus World Market. I know the store well so I was looking forward to choosing something to work with! Not an easy task, everything in there looks pretty enough to be a card!
Shirley Novak "Amapola, Barcelona" prints - at first for the colors that popped out at me, and then because they reminded me of Nina Brackett's wonderful "Hugs and Prayers" stamp set that I got at Gina K. Designs! Yay!! I love this set -- there's so many images and sentiments included in it that they all barely fit on the landing card that comes with it for storage.
I prepared a pallet for the flowers using So Saffron ink sponged onto a Nestie rectangle shaped layer. I colored the solid group of poppies from the set, direct to rubber, with SU Markers and stamped it onto the rectangle layer. I stamped my sentiment over the poppies and layered the image with black, white, and So Saffron mats. I popped up the image with dimensionals and added a cream colored bow to finish.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
