It's time for another challenge over at The Stamp Man and this week we would like to see a Poppy in your creation. Janet's husband is organising a fund raising concert on the 25th October for the British Legion and they are trying to get together some cards to sell. If you would like to donate your creation to the concert, you can post it to The Stamp Man, but you are not obliged to - you can enter the challenge with any Poppy themed project and you will be eligible for the prize and top places whether you send them in or not.
For my card I used stamps from the Aspect of Design Nature set and Aspect of Design Framies. I coloured the poppy in with Pro-Markers and used DI around the edges. The poppy and the word is cut out using Labels 5 Nestabilities. The embossed panel is made using the Stylised Flower EF and then distressing the edges and giving it the DI treatment.
The background paper is from the Prima Botanical pad and I've stamped the butterflies onto it using Tea Dye DI. The bow is made from binding tape and I've rubbed Scattered Straw DI over it and frayed the edges slightly.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
