I wanted to play along with this week's Friday Mashup challenge, but in the UK we're not really that big on the whole 'patriotic' theme and our remembrance event happens in November, which is symbolised by the poppy so I thought I would go in that direction, with a theme of gratitude (although I don't know anyone who has served in the armed forces, I do know that they deserve our thanks a thousand times over). I used the Card Patterns sketch to get me going...
I used the Ornate Flowers set to create some poppies and came up with this:
I stamped the flowers twice each in Poppy Parade then again in Night of Navy, cutting out the centres and layering on the full flowers. I added some swirls cut with the Swirls Scribbles die. The dsp is from the new Attic Boutique range in the Summer Mini catty.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Ornate Flowers, Apothecary Art
Ink: Poppy Parade, Night of Navy
Paper: Attic Boutique dsp, Night of Navy, Confetti White
Tools: Swirls Scribbles die, corner rounder punch, edgelits die & embossing folder
Accessories: Daffodil Delight striped ribbon
Thanks for stopping by!
