Scribble and Scrap - Poppies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good weekend. We enjoyed the theatre yesterday we had a nice meal before hand. Today will be a quiet  those wedding invitations won't make themselves.

Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Scribble and Scrap Challenge blog the theme is always "Anything Goes" and there are prizes for the winners. This is my Design Team inspiration piece.


The main image was made with a Sweet Poppy stencil. The paper I used was in my stash I like the flourishes on the design. I went for a central panel and I edged it with a pre gathered lace. 


I used the poppy stencil to create the image. First I used Distress ink to colour the poppies I like how the colours blend. I wiped all the ink off the stencil and then I applied a translucent paste. Once this had been done the stencil was removed and a fine glitter applied. This was left to dry overnight. I usually make a few in one session when I have all the bits out to play. My mother-in-law loves this image so I use it a lot. 


The sentiment is a Kanban one that I had in my stash I thought it suited the design.  


I have made this for my Mother-in-law it is her birthday soon.  I must get on with the wedding invitations. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
