Pretty Poppy

Hola Folks,

How is your week going?  I hope those of you in the freezing cold are staying warm... And how is it that we are in MARCH already?! 

Well, I'm stopping by to let you know that the new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges has begun. :)  The theme is:

You can create a layout, card, canvas, album, or an "off-the-page" project.
I created a card using a large poppy stamp by Unity Stamp Co.  I heat embossed the poppy on watercolor paper and then "painted" the flower with some distress ink.  I decided to paint "outside the lines" in order to see the complete flower.

I also used distress inks (Broken China & Peacock Feathers) to stamp my butterflies.  I used Broken China on one side and Peacock Feathers on the other.  And I finished off my card with some pearls.
(Supplies: cardstock; watercolor paper; poppy stamp- Unity Stamp Co.; butterfly stamp- Recollections; embossing powder; heat gun; distress inks- Ranger; pearls- Doodlebug; paint brush)
Ok, folks, you know the drill: get crafty, have fun, & link up here. ;)
And thank you for stopping by to visit me.  I greatly appreciate it. :D
Happy Crafting,
