Chocolate Baroque GDT post 1 - February 2019 - Poppy Meadow

Poppy Congratulations

Good morning everyone.

I am back again as a guest design team member for Chocolate Baroque, this being my first of three posts during February.

I have used the beautiful poppy stamp from Poppy Meadow and the centre of Song Thrush. It is relatively quick to make too.

Products used:-  Poppy Meadow, Song Thrush, word from Loving sentiments stamps, Versafine Black and Majestic blue inkpads, Artcuts  wooden heart, white acrylic paint, watercolour pencils, DL card base.
The poppy has been stamped with Versafine black and clear  embossed to fit onto a DL card base. 
I have used a  heart shape as the central element.
As my shape was wood and I wanted the blue to be crisp and clear, I painted it with slightly watered down, white acrylic paint.
When dry, the centre of the Song Thrush stamp was inked with Blue Versafine  and the heart was placed over the section I wanted to stamp.
All the colouring has been done with water colour pencils.
For the top and bottom edges I drew a line using the same blue as the rest of the card . Then I pulled a damp wipe along the edge to smudge and soften it slightly.
The joy of the poppy stamps is that you can colour them almost any colour you like. This shape reminded me of the blue Icelandic poppies.
Hope you have enjoyed my post and see you next week with my second project.
Thank you for visiting and happy crafting
