The Iceland Poppy

Hi there - Linda here today playing with the gorgeous Iceland Poppy (large) 
from Poppy Stamps Dies.
Definitely a fun die to create with :)

For my card today I started with a water coloured ombre background using 
Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

This involved coating the top of the Tim Holtz Water Colour Cardstock with undiluted ink 
and then gradually dragging it down the card with a wet brush.

I die cut the large poppy from white card and coloured it with a Prisma 
Coloured Pencil that matched the Worn Lipstick ink.

I splattered the ombre background with Heidi Swapp Gold 
Colour Shine and stamped the sentiment.

The poppy was adhered to the card with foam tape for a little dimension.

I hope I've inspired you to get crafty today.
Have a great week.
