MC Mar/11 - Thank You Poppies
This card was created specifically for a punch challenge and a black & white challenge and I wanted to use the new poppy stamp (Hero Arts "Delicate Blossoms" set #CL449) I got yesterday. Love them. The card is 5.5"w x 4.25"h (ps I put the card image on a grey background so it would stand out from my black blog background)
I punched the border of my main white card and then a smaller black version using Martha Stewart "Layered Arches" Punch Around the Page set.
Stamped the flowers with a Perfect Medium pad and embossed with white, then colored between the lines with a Quickie Glue Pen and Ritz Micro Fine Glitter (Warm & Cool highlights). The cool on black gives a bluish tinge and the warm gives a golden tinge.
I then stamped the Thank You (Quietfire Design), leaving more space between the words, with Brilliance Moonlight White and embossed with the white. Done - clean and simple.
