All the wonderful images in the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments Bundle inspire creativity every time I see them! I just love the power and simplicity of this card using the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Painted Labels Dies. Those reds (Poppy Parade) just really pop (yeah, I hear the pun too!) against the Whisper White cardstock. The flower heads were quick and easy to color in with my Poppy Parade Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker and I topped it off with a little Wink of Stella on each one. I didn’t even try to use shading on those little flowers; just a solid coloring with the dark marker. I did use both the light and dark markers to color the large poppy and the leaves. The fun swirly die is a great accent for the sentiment from the By the Dock stamp set. I also used a stitched circle for the sentiment from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
The inside was kept simple with a bold sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and just a peek of the field of poppies in the lower right corner.
