Different Poppies

This is another stamp by Hero Arts that I got from Sir Stampalot. I love it! I can see it in lots of different colours, or just embossed in silver or gold. I found myself using some different colour combinations here, but I think they work! I stamped the stamp in brown versafine and embossed with detail clear. After that I coloured it with promarkers. I stamped the swirl (Elusive Images), in chalk ink on the pearlised base card.
I want to let you know that you are in for a real treat when you see the DT's cards for the Sir Stampalot challenge blog. Make sure you sign up to follow so you can join in the fun!
Sorry to those of you who I have not had chance to visit this week. It's the last week of term and on top of Data crunching and a governors meeting, I seem to be so tired I've lost the ability to focus for long! Off to try and get an earlier night tonight. Thanks for visiting!

Hi Sally

Fabulous card Sally - love the Poppy's (I do love Poppies, and also my youngest granddaughter is called Poppy - hence the name of my Blog)!! I really like the swirl background you've created with that beautiful EI stamp. I tend to forget that it isn't always necessary to reach for the backing paper!
Hope you have a restful evening. Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Hi Sally

This stamp really does works in so many way as you say and I love this take on it. The vibrancy is wonderful.
