Sparkly poppies

Good morning, isn't it lovely to have such gorgeous sunny weather? The only downside is that our office is like the fires of hell with the sun streaming in the windows but I'd be complaining even more if it was raining so I'll stop moaning lol. Today's project is a tag made using a technique I fell in love with in Craft Stamper, you know those ideas that you see and think 'Wow I wish I'd thought of that' lol.


I've used a background made with Twinkling H2os and began by stamping some Lavinia stamps using Memento inks (Bamboo Leaves, Rhubard Stalk, Lady Bug and Tuxedo Black.

Next I used a Sweet Poppy stencil to create the poppies using Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts, adding colour with my Graph'It markers. I'd never have thought of colouring Sparkle medium with my markers but it works perfectly,  its really hard to get a pic of the effect though


I've added black enamel accents to the flowers and the butterfly and then some little flowers stamped with stamps from Indigo Blu and painted with h2os, I popped them up up on 3d foam pads and layered it all up on some black card. To finish off I added some red seam binding ribbon.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Artistic Stamper: Colour it red
Charisma: sparkle and shine
Dragonfly Dreams: things with wings
Fussy and Fancy: things with wings
Imagination Crafts: all that glitters
Live and Love Crafts: summer garden
Scrapbooker Phd: add texture

Well I'd better scoot off and get ready for work so have a great day and thanks for popping by
