Poppies for Ardodd (Ann)

Happy New Year everyone!

Wow it has been a long time since I've been able to stamp. It sure feels good to get back into it. And what a great way to get started - with a challenge from SCS. Today is the Featured Stamper (FS) challenge and our stamper is Ardodd (Ann). Ann's gallery is beautiful and I had several of her cards favorited so it didn't take me long to decide on one. This is the card I cased.
I just got this Hero Arts Poppy Background image and thought it was perfect to use for the case. I inked up the image with Versafine Onyx Black but I didn't get complete coverage with the ink so I colored over the black with a Copic marker. That did the trick! I colored in the poppies with SU! Real Red and Gable Green markers. I used Amuse Micro Twinklers for the poppy centers. The matted image is adhered to the cardbase with SU! Dimensionals.

Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Paper - PaperTrey, Bazzill; Misc - SU! Markers, Copic marker, Amuse Micro Twinklers, SU! Dimensionals
