Simon Says - Poppy Perfection

Hi my friends, I'm back to share another card made using the Poppy Perfection stamp set and cover of the ModaScrap Spring Poppies Paper Pad from the Simon Says Stamp Poppy Perfection April Card Kit. The kit is still available to buy or you can purchase individual items from the kit HERE.

I do love poppies and have them all over my garden. They self seed, appear out of nowhere, year after year but sadly the flowers never last more than a few days. I was rather taken by the patchwork look of the cover of the ModaScrap Spring Poppies Paper Pad so I trimmed off the centre banner panel, fixed the remaining side sections to a panel of white cardstock and ran a permanent black marker around the edges.
I stamped the large poppy image from Poppy Perfection on to Distress Watercolor card, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink and coloured with Candied Apple, Crackling Campfire, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey Distress Watercolor Pencils and a Detailer Brush.
I tore a panel of vellum to be slightly smaller than the background, stamped the sentiment from Poppy Perfection, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink, sprinkled with Ranger Black Embossing Powder and heat set. I fussy cut around the poppy image and fixed to the vellum with small pieces of the Foam Strips included with the kit. I added Distress Collage Medium to the back of the vellum only where the image was and attached to the panel.
I added splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint over the vellum and dots to the poppy centres using a Sakura Black Glaze Pen.
I matted the panel on to a white card blank and added my new guilty pleasure, the super cute Creamy Vanilla Heart Sprinkles from Trinity Stamps.

 Happy Crafting, have fun with whatever you are making
