Poppies with feathers

Afternoon All

Been a busy morning doing my weekly shop,
Sun has been shinning but now heavy hail  - Wonderful !!!

Here is the card I have been working on for sometime, 
as it does, things kept on changing 
until I was happy with it. 

I hope you like it

I started with the IndigoBlu Poppy Stamp

Stamped it onto Acetate with Black Archival ink
Then the clever part

Used double sided sticky paper to "seal" in the ink

 Cut a pattern on the back and used gliding flakes
to "colour" the poppy. 

Cut poppy out

Then used a piece of hand painted paper to 
stamp poppies around the edge with 

Distress ink - painted in with gold and same colour paint.

Mounted onto orange card and then onto  Kraft Card Blank

Added feathers, and die cut out butterflies
and of course the gems in the corners. :)

One completed card.

I hope you like it
