Dark Purple Poppy


I wish flowers grew in winter but I'm sure most of you would say I should wish for summer all year round, LOL!!!  I'm most inspired to create when I see floral images and you're not seeing things, I have used this one a couple times before.  The beautiful Poppy is a digital stamp from Daisy's Digi Doodles.


My card base is Handsome Hunter layered with PTI White then dark purple cardstock embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Handsome Hunter before attaching to the card base using mounting tape.  To embellish the card I added a bow made with metallic silver ribbon and a metallic silver dew drop in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!


CREATIVE DESIGN:
  • Stamps: Poppy (Daisy's Digi Doodles)
  • Paper: Handsome Hunter, PTI White and Purple Cardstock
  • Ink: Copics RV95, V99, G94, G99
  • Other: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Metallic Silver Ribbon, Metallic Silver Dew Drops, Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, Glue Dots and Mounting Tape
