Bright Poppies-cQc#29

Arielle over at ColourQ has a color CHALLENGE this week! With colors like Bravo Burgundy, Tangerine Tango, Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore and Whisper White you can see why it was a challenge! I wanted to use the new Awash with Flowers clear mount stamp set that I think has a ton of potential and working with these colors, I knew I was going to need all the help I could get! :)

Here is what I came up with! A field of poppies in full bloom! I stamped the poppies in Yoyo Yellow and Tangerine Tango. The stems are highlighted using the Green Galore marker and the middle parts of the poppies (I guess they are the seeds?) are colored in using the Bravo Burgundy Marker.

I mounted the poppy panel onto a piece of Bravo Burgundy card stock and then a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock. I added a few "mail friendly" (I take a hole punch and punch out a hole from a dimensional and then punch out a piece of card stock using the same hole punch I want the "brad" color to be and then put them together.) brads to the top left and stamped my sentiment on the bottom right to balance out the card.

Thanks for looking!
and thanks for the CHALLENGE Arielle!

Ohhh... love it! The vibrant colours are just awesome. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of this stamp set so I'll be saving this card for inspiration. TFS!
