More Poppies...






























I seem to be stuck on making Poppy cards at the moment, here is another for the "Virginia's View" challenge at The Lily Pad Blog.  Must be due to the fact the weather in the UK is really bad at the moment, after a fairly dry March, April has been non stop rain,  I can't wait for summer.....

Made this card by just using distress stains and inks, stamped the background, then inked some paper with Fired Brick and re stamped the image so I could cut out the poppies.  A really simple card, but I love the effect the distress inks have, so pretty.

I love that you are stuck on Poppies. Your cards are wonderful. I have the same stamp so you give me fabulous ideas.

I HOPE it dries up in the UK as well. We leave here (Maple Ridge, BC Canada) on May 18th for 3 plus weeks in GB.
