Poppies!

Monday, January 21, 2013

The red and black color challenge at Dynamic Duos got me thinking about poppies (despite the valentine dessert option).  There's something very exciting about a red and black card especially if you throw in a lot of white space.  To that end, the CAS sketch at The Paper Players was perfect!



The beautiful poppy image is from Pleasant Poppies.  I stamped part of the image on a small white square then hand-drew a frame around it.  I wanted it to be a little wobbly, and I figured the best way to do that was have a cup of coffee then sit down with a marker!  My hand was steadier than I wanted but it's wobbly enough!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this card! The pop (no pun intended) of red on all of that beautiful white space is striking. And that black frame is such a perfect finishing touch. Glad to see you join us at the Paper Players this week!
