LIM week 79 - blue and green

The challenge on Less is More this week is a colour one - use blue and green. I've used two poppy stamps from Clarity embossing them with blue powder, colouring with promarkers and then brayering over with Lettuce and stonewash blue. You can see a card I did with them here the other day in the  more usual red variation. This time I decided not to use the full height of the first poppy stamp so it made for a smaller 5x5 card. I mounted it onto the card and then with a blue stardust gel pen made a border. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin.

I love poppies too Lynn and I'm sure we have had a variety of Californian poppy that was just this shade. Love that sentiment. Hope you are still on the mend.
