Stampin Ups Perfectly Penned Poppies


I'm loving seeing crocus' and snowdrops popping up.  Also our daffies which are starting to come through.  Is Spring on it's way? 

It's a great time to join in with Less is More this week as they have a colour theme of Green and Yellow, just right for Spring. 

I love poppies and Stampin' Up!'s Pleasant Poppies stamp makes a great background.  I inked it up with Pistachio Pudding, but before stamping I coloured a single bloom with Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Marker.  Once stamped I then coloured the spot lighted flower with Daffodil Delight. 

For the sentiment I chose the beautiful Perfectly Penned and stamped it in Always Artichoke onto velum.  I used 4 candy dots to hide my glue.  I then popped up the panel on Dimensionals and attached to a Pistachio Pudding base. 

We've had a lovely sunny day today.  Great for out walking the dog and taking some time to craft. 

  It's the beginning of March and we are in our last month of Sale-A-Bration, the best time to add to your stash and earn a freebie or two.

Lovely card, Aileen. I like the way you have coloured only one flower, that's very effective.
