Poppy Fields

This card is made with today's sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. I wanted to use my new Oh, So Lovely set, and I knew I wanted the poppies to be red. So from there, I chose my background paper and other colors. I stamped the flowers several times with Onyx black Versafine ink on watercolor paper, then colored with an aquapainter, including some blue background. I added Star Dust Stickles to the flowers and some matching crystal brads at the top of the card. That *gorgeous* wrinkled brown ribbon by May Arts is from Verve Visual, and I'm running out! ***gasp*** Time for an emergency order. Well, that's pretty much it. Thanks for stopping by.

What's In It:
Stamps: Stampin' Up Oh, So Lovely and Papertrey Ink Faux Ribbon
Paper: Papertrey white, choc chip, soft sky, watercolor, Starfish Designs background paper
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, versamagic jumbo java, SU real red, old olive, only orange, pumpkin pie, so saffron, soft sky, cool caribbean
Other: Making Memories crystal brads, Star Dust stickles, may arts ribbon, marvy giga scalloped square punch, aquapainter, dimensionals
