CAL-Card Concept #4-Himalayan blue poppies & CAS(E) this sketch #65
Hi there! It seems to be the week for poppies over at my two favourite card challenge sites...
I did not see anything else at the moment to stamp my card for the two challenges that I am entering this card into, just not using my own imagination for interpreting differently, but I do like this Clean and Layered card that I made for the Card Concept challenge #4 and CTS # 65 with an older Magenta poppy stamp and a fern frond from K and Co. that I stamped and cut out. The poppies were stamped onto a card stock weight velum from PTI in black craft ink and then heat embossed with black and I cut out, replacing the stems with some that I free hand cut out of PTI Limeade Ice CS. I coloured the back of the stamped/embossed poppies with a blue Sharpie. The colour on velum looks very close to SU Baja Blue and that is what I used under my floating white panel. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. This was also black craft ink and heat embossed onto a parchment velum and I trimmed to look like a thin banner. The little Mason jars are from Unity and I stamped in white PTI Fresh Snow and heat embossed with SU Tempting Turquoise powder onto the same heavy weight velum and then I trimmed out. The backs of the mason jars are also coloured with a Copic. To give a little base weight, I stamped a PTI border with Baja Blue ink. So, as you can see, I used this sketch quite literally and for the Card Concept theme, to use florals, I also used the poppies for inspiration, just a different colour theme.
Hope that you are having a fun day and getting some crafting in! Thanks for stopping by!
