Spotlight Poppies

I love this stamp!  So simple but very versatile.  A lovely bunch of spring flowers for a friend in the CAS style.






The poppies are stamped onto a smooshed background on linen paper.  I coloured the flowers using Lyra watercolour crayons, and used white gel pen to highlight the edges, then diecut into a circle. I also stamped onto a white piece of card and left it uncoloured.  The circle is mounted on 3D foam and placed over the uncoloured image, matching the lines of the image. The sentiment is two stamps from the same set that I have had for years and is unbranded.

Image stamp: Penny Black
Circle Die: Spellbinders
Sentiment stamps: unknown brand
Also: ribbon, red pearls

TicTacToe rows: (Pearls-red-ribbon, or pearls-flowers-green, or Red-image-dies)
