Pink Poppy

Hi folks, hope you are all enjoying the sun today, hope you all are having lovely sunshine today.

So my post today is floral.  Starting with a C5 centura pearl card followed by another piece of centura pearl card which instead of pricking around the edges I had, yesterday, used cosmic shimmer pearlescent pva in vintage pink and put pearl dots around.  I have only done this once before, I love the effect, but even after practising on my craft mat I still managed to get a few smaller than others.

I then embossed some pink co'ordinations card using an embossalicious 8x8 flower folder, one of my favourites and sanded that down a little.

My image is the Creative Expressions Poppy Stamp which I stamped with perfect medium and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Burnt Red Lustre Embossing Powder, a truly beautiful embossing powder.  I die cut it out using floral ovals spellie and inked around the edges using Victorian Velvet distress ink.

My flowers are all Marianne dies which I inked the edges once I had put them together with the Victorian velvet distress ink and finished off with a dot of cosmic shimmer pearlescent pva in vintage pink.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

  7. Oh my! this is gorgeous, love the design and pink tones. Well done on the Cosmic Shimmer pearl dots, they are brilliat x

  8. A lovely card! I recognise the poppy stamp (it is one on my favourites). I thought the pva glue dots were brilliant. I wouldn't have noticed the smaller ones if you hadn't said. These definitely get easier the more times you do them. Julia Watts always says "don't over think it, just go for it!". xx
