Mother's Days Challenge

A card for my marvellous Mum.  My Mum loves poppies so I had had this stamp in mind for her card since last month, and then when I saw the theme of this months challenge, thought I should enter.  However, I didn't want to post it until I had given it to her!

The poppy was stamped using butterscotch, once using the whole stamp and once on a smaller card, just highlighting one area; I think it works well, highlighting the smaller bud rather than the more obvious main flower head.  Both stamped images were then coloured using gel pens, the card has a slight mica effect from using the gel pens; I have used 4 shades of red and 3 shades of green pens.  Both coloured images were then mounted on separate dark green card, leaving a narrow border.  The top, partial poppy, image was then mounted to line-up with the main image using foam pads, you may be able to see the shadow from the raised top layer.  I love this Clarity poppy stamp and have used it many times.
I love you Mum.


  1. A very pretty card and excellent for Mothers Day, I'm sure your Mum was delighted.
    Good luck in the Clarity Challenge.
