A Poppy in the Hand…

Hi everyone!  My Favorite Things has yet another great sketch this week.  I used my favorite new Lisa Johnson set, Pretty Poppies.

I stamped the flowers onto Smooth White cardstock using Electric Red ink. Look at how fabulously the ink covers the Smooth White paper.  Love it!

After masking the lower flower, I stamped the stems and leaves in Gumdrop Green.

I tweaked the layout just a bit in order to accommodate the sentiment.  Circle STAX 1 and 2 provided a perfectly layered circle.  A Black Licorice button was stitched onto the panel using white string.

On the inside, I stamped a single poppy leaving plenty of room for a personal note.
