Poppy Thoughts

 It has been a very long time since I have used this stamp from Rubbernecker, but fond memories came back while I was using it.
 This is a layering stamp with two pieces. I first painted the flowers using Ken Oliver Color Burst in Crimson Red and Lemon Yellow, painting directly with the powders, which gives brilliant colour. I pulled the yellow away from the centre of the card creating the very light yellow. I then stamped the outline layer in black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 
 Once dry I die cut the panel and added acrylic splatter using turquoise and black paint. I die cut another piece in the black, and also stamped the sentiment on black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder. 
I put everything together with the panels slightly angled. I do love the brilliant colours of the Poppies.

I have finally managed to play along in all three of the CAS challenges, submitting this card for the CAS April Watercolour Challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. 


  1. Gorgeous poppies Kia!! I love the loose look of this layered stamp. The colours you've used are so vibrant and beautiful. Great design with your stitched panel backed with an off-set black panel. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

  2. Beautiful poppies, Kia! I love how you've pulled the color into a yellow glow around the poppies! The splatter adds wonderful interest and I love the addition of the turquoise! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!
