CAS Inspiration Challenge

Besides butterflies I LOVE poppies.  I was so excited to see that the inspiration photo for the SCS CAS212 challenge was of this gorgeous cake:

I bought two new poppy stamp sets from Rubbernecker at the Scrapbook Expo this weekend so of course I had to ink them up for this challenge.
This is the first card I created:
This is a two step stamp image.  I stamped the line art in Versafine Onyx Black and then the flower part with Pure Poppy ink and used a stamp-a-majig to line up the flower heads. I stamped one of the sentiments from this set and added a few rhinestones.

Here is the second card:
Again, this is a two step stamp image.  This time after stamping the line art part I colored the flower image with two colors of red markers right onto the rubber and then stamped using a stamp-a majig.  I used Real Red ink for the sentiment. 

Thanks for coming by!
