DTGD12 Poppies

I made this for Joanne’s fabulous Dare to Get Dirty 2012 Challenge! Check out all the Challenge details here: DTGD12Basilefamily. For my colorful card, I started by making a background on water color paper with Peerless water colors. The colors were put down in a random, almost haphazard way and when it dried, I picked an area and stamped this wonderful Poppy image (Blockheads) with black ink. I was going to leave it w/ the background, but it didn’t stand out enough, so I ended up fussy cutting it and attaching it to a white die cut panel. After figuring out where the poppy would be, I stamped just the word “poppy” onto the white bg. The layer behind it more of the plain water color bg, then another white layer. For the final water color bg, I stamped a few of the different poppy images from the set before die cutting it. I added a bright pink bow and my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to play in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges this week. Lots of fun, inspiration, chatter and PRIZES!

  1. Love how you offset the frame, so we can see more of the background – super card. So bright and cheery

  2. So beautiful. Lovely, lovely colours. Your fussy cuts add a nice touch.
