Blue poppy

I have seen lots of stamping and colouring on Kraft recently, so I thought I would have a go with the beautiful botanical poppy from Inkylicious.
I coloured the poppy with my watercolour pencils and then used my water brush to blend. The base card is stamped with worn paint background in tumbled glass Distress ink and then dusted with walnut stain. I stamped flourish 2 with walnut stain distress ink too and added a sticky ribbon (free with a magazine many years ago!)
As this poppy stamp is new stash, I am entering it into this week's Allsorts Challenge where the theme is 'use your new stash'.
Thanks for looking!
