Pretty Poppies

Hi, I hope everyone had a fabulous long Labor Day weekend
and hopefully had a little bit of time to craft.
My hand is doing much better after my carpal tunnel surgery
so I was able to get some things done.
So today I have a card to share with you that I hope will brighten
your day.

I stamped these beautiful very large Poppies from  Unity Stamps
by Donna Downey on watercolor paper then heat embossed them using white embossing powder.
Then colored them using Zig Clean Color brush markers.  I love those things!
I masked off the flowers so some looked like they were behind others, but I messed up a bit and should have masked the big one and stamped the one
up in the corner so it would be over the big one, but I guess it came out looking ok anyways peeking out in the back.
These stamps are pretty big the front one measures about 4 inches.  Then
I stamped a border across the middle to set off the sentiment a little.  I saw someone do this (wish I could remember who) and liked the touch it added.
The sentiment is a Rubbernecker stamp.
I wish it would show up in the picture because I covered the poppies with
clear Wink of Stella so they are all sparkly.

Thanks for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think
of my card.
