After seeing this article and beautiful card by Debby I was inspired to colour on some vellum, first I stamped and embossed the Poppies by Hero Arts with Antique Verdigris embossing powder and then coloured in with a mixture of Distress markers and Copics. After cutting with a fancy edge die from Avery Elle, I then layered up the image onto some linen look grey card stock . Finally adding the pearls and bakers twine, I have left off the sentiment as I like to have some blank cards ready to add the sentiment when needed.
Here is a close up of the image, I love the effect of the embossing powder, so pretty.
Here is a second card for the Simon Says Tag challenge, I have also based this on Debby's gorgeous card, I have cased her sketch. I was fun playing with non Christmas stamps for a change!!
