Poppy Power!

Morning all.  For anyone reading my yesterday's blog post, I can admit that one of the reasons I was late is because I'd got all my blogs in a twist (a very painful state of affairs I can assure you).  I have a list of subjects and the dates I need to get them done by.  I was so pleased with myself over this one for the Alphabet Challenge  I totally missed the other subject for yesterday.  It wasn't the only reason but I could have done without it.  

We have come to the letter P and are looking for either Poppies or Pumpkins.  I've had this poppy field stamp for several years but it's always been a bit daunting to colour.  I've never really been happy with the results.  This time I googled poppy fields on the internet and chose to us a picture for my inspiration rather than following the stamp picture, which was just a mass of red with little definition.  Yes, I do still have a mass of red but you can see a little of the green stems showing underneath.

I am much happier with the result this time.  I wanted to frame the image but struggled to find a suitable oval shape.  Using this leaf frame was a bit of inspiration from out of nowhere really.  I'm pleased with the result - even if it does look wonky on my card blank.  Go on, you can't not see it now I've mentioned it can you?

Please pop over and play.  It's the right time of year for pumpkins and poppies.

Thanks for reading.

  6. Beautiful scene card. Love how the leaves frame it all. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. Beautiful, love the frame. Yep i didn't notice the slight wonky until you said:-) So don't think its really that noticable as the poppy picture draws the eye inwards. Emmax

  8. Hi Dawn! This is such a lovely card and I love the black frame! The image really glows with the simple dark framing and you did a great job with the die cut inlay technique which is not easy with those fidgety detail pieces on the ends! Very beautiful work! : )
