The Stampman Poppies Challenge

Happy Friday everyone. I hope your week has gone well.

It's time for another challenge over at The Stampman and this time the lovely Janet has set us the theme of POPPIES.

Her husband is organising a fund raising concert for The British Legion in Skipton on 25th October and thought it'd be great to have some handmade cards to sell. So if you'd like to be challenged, dig out all those lovely Poppy stamps you have in your stash and get creating. If you'd like to donate your cards to Janet, via The Stampman, she'd be thrilled, but there is absolutely no obligation. You will still be in with a chance of winning the £10 Stampman vouchers whether you donate them or not, so have fun.

Here is my Design project this time.

I used a Hero Cling stamp coloured with distress inks and then cut out and decoupaged with some stickles and glossy accents to highlight the lovely flower.

It is mounted on some embossed card using the Script Cuttlebug folder which had lime green chalk ink lightly rubbed over. The other embossed card is some Core'dinations Black magic which has been lightly sanded to show the red through.

The Sentiment is in an Aspects of Design Framie and I coloured some white nail heads with a promarker to match.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

A stunning creation Lisa - the beautiful Poppy really stands out from the embossed background. Love the effect of the black Co'ordinations card with the red core.

Fabulous card Lisa, that flower looks gorgeous - Glossy Accents really makes a difference. The CB script is just perfect for the theme.

What a fabulous card Lisa. I love the techniques you have used on here and the poppy looks gorgeous. I'm a sucker for script backgrounds whether stamped or embossed so this really pushes the right buttons for me. Beautiful!

Hi lisa I'm just catching up with everyone as easter hols finished last wednesday when the kids went to school, and I've not managed to blog either which i think has a bit to do with lack of blogging. I've been looking through all your posts that I've missed and wow you have done so much. You have had some gorgeous days out the pics are brill, your dd does some beautiful work and she definitely will be an artist of some sort as she has a fab eye for colour and her colouring is way better than mine, how old is she? Looks like you both had a fantastic day at the workshop. Your pieces for the stampman are stunning, the utee stamping into was great, the resist tag was brill and the poppy is stunning. I have been following the stampman blog but not entered yet, lack of confidence i think, mind you i am going to do some poppy cards to send as i think its a great cause. I'm hopefully going to lock myself in the craft room today and try and create and blog. Thanks lisa fir supporting me from the beginning and i really appreciate you being a follower. Kezzy x
