Poppy Love

Best of 2014!
My card today is for 3 Challenges: Sweet Stamps Love Challenge, Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC428), & Splitcoast Lovefest Challenge (LOVEFEST2014B)! For the IC Challenge, I was inspired by THIS rug. I love the poppies and circular shape around them.

It’s no secret that I love floral images..especially I love to color them. Don’t you just adore this Poppy Vase image? I couldn’t wait to color it. Instead of bright red poppies, I made mine more of a coral, orangey color, sort of a California poppy color.  I used Copics to color it then a circle die to cut it out. I decided I only wanted a partial circle, so I cut off the left side. The remaining piece of white card stock, was trimmed and embossed with a small heart pattern before I attached them both to a piece of violet blue designer paper. The “love you” phrase was die cut out of a textured metallic copper card stock and I made a matching 1/2 inch faux brad  ( I also did a similar tutorial for Splitcoast HERE) out the same card stock and attached it to help fill in a little of the blank space. The rest of the layout came about because of pieces I had left over and I decided I liked the way they fit.

These are the Copics I used to color the image:
Poppies, Flowers & Leaves- Y06, Y15,  R00, R02, R22, R27, R35, R46, R89, , B21, B24, B28,YG01, YG25,YG45, G28
Vase: B60, B63, BV20, BV25, C00, C1, C3

Thanks so much for stopping by!
