Pretty Poppy

It's been a funny old day today. First hubby gets a tummy upset and spends most of the day either in bed or on the 'throne' and BJ, my youngest, has to stay off work as he has Man 'flu! I was supposed to be house sitting for him and my D-i-L while a new phone line was fitted, but as he's poorly, I wasn't needed. Good job too, as I've spent the day washing!
All seems to have quietened down though now, so I can now get my latest card on here.

I wanted to try out my new Sizzix texture plates and was just messing with some spare white card.
Before you know it, THIS was born! I hadn't inked that poppy stamp up in AGES!
It's by Dimension Fourth. I sponged the coloured areas on the card with Tim Holtz distress inks, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade.
I coloured the clear 'pearls' with Copics to match the colour scheme, such as it is.
That's all there was to it really. I hope you like it.
(Please leave me a comment if you do. I DO appreciate them all).

Back soon! Viv xx

Superb card Viv and you colouring is pwerfect. I wouldn't have thought of colouring jewels with Copics but I may now :o)
I hope the menfolk are much better now before they wear you out!

OMG this is beautiful. I love the Sizzix texture you have created & the colours are stunning. Sorry to hear hubby has been poorly though. Nothing worse than a MAN being ill xx Clare x
