Poppy Birthday

What a super color combo for today’s Color Challenge (CC475) on Splitcoast! Love these bright, high contrast colors! The red & orange remind me of poppies, so that’s the direction I went. I spent most of my time fiddling with background…the rest was quick & easy.

On the background, I started by using a large water color brush and a couple of red & orange reinkers. I also splattered a bit using the brush. Then I took a couple of stencils and sponged on some real red thru the stencils. I die cut the poppies & the little squares out of this. The greeting was stamped in a combo of the two blue inks. I don’t have any little enamel dots, but I did find these sort of metallic ones. They weren’t quite blue enough, so I added a little more blue w/ a Copic marker.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. A very striking card Julie! Love the poppy die.

  3. Beautiful colors – but I don’t really understand how there’s white in the background, if you were using red, orange, and Real Red.
    Don’t you just love auto-correct? I bet you used re-inkers, not reindeers!!!!!!!
