Poppies!!


After seeing some beautiful poppies growing on the grass verges as we drove back from our weekly shop this morning I was inspired to get out this old Hero Arts poppy stamp.  The new challenge at Hero Arts for June is Tic Tac Toe.



I decided to follow the bottom row, watercolour, tag and my favorite colour (RED).  The poppies were stamped using Distress Markers and when dry I added some water colour with a paintbrush and my Distress Stains. After lots of goes to get it right I am pleased with the final image (lots of smudged designs lol).
