Bright poppies

Spectrum Noir Maya Isaksson WM poppies

I went to this amazing Art journaling class with Vicky Papaioannou a few weeks back. I got this Stampendous stamp set with Poppies in my kit. They are big and lovely and I felt like I needed to color them properly once. I kinda forgot that bright reds are pretty hard to color with. In the end, it turned out ok I think, I used Spectrum Noir Illustrators for this. I stamped in grey so the lines wouldn’t stand out as much.

I Hand cut the vase and flowers and added them on top of an old Christmas patterned paper, it kinda looks like wallpapers in the background. I popped the flowers and table up on foam tape and I think it gives some extra depth to the card.

These are the colors I used for my card: DR1, DR4, TN8, DR5, JG4, JG5, GB1, IB1, JG3

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
