Flower Power at Penny Black & More challenge

Our theme this month on Penny Black & More is "Flower Power".

For my DT card I've used my latest purchase the new "dynamic" stamp. I just had to get this as it is a poppy. Hard to find in the UK, but luckily one of our Sponsors this month Crafts U Love did it on a special order for me. They are really friendly and helpful.

I stamped the poppy head several times and clear embossed, then I dragged fired brick distress oxide ink over the image. I did the same with two sets of leaves and cut them all out. Then I used the stamp for  the leaves on the background circle, and one poppy head in the centre. I coloured the leaves with a little diluted distress oxide.

I stamped my base card with the poppy head in the corners. Then I layered up my card. Adding some silver and white highlighting to the poppy heads. Finally I add a Phill Martin scribbled sentiment die.

Don't forget we have as usual fab prizes on offer. Our sponsors this month are Penny Black, Marianne Designs and Crafts U Love.

Wow Lynn !!

As you will know I adore this and love how you have used the Poppy to create the layered foal element and then stamped the background in just black, works a treat.

I adore Poppies and I really love your card too. I really like how you’ve kept all of the colour to the inside and used just black in the corners. I’ve made a Poppy card too which I’ll post on the eleventh. I’ve just seen your last post too and it’s really comforting to know that somebody else has a desk like mine! ;). Crafty hugs, Sandra x

This one packs quite a punch Lynn - what a lovely stamp too! The richness of the red on those poppies and so appropriate with Remembrance Sunday next weekend - a stunning card, well done, Leanne xxxx
