Today we remember the dead of the two world wars as well as those who have given their lives in other wars, so I was mindful of making this card which uses the poppy which reminds us of these events.
I began by stamping randomly over a piece of green square card using a small stamp from Elusive Images (now Chocolate baroque) summer poppies set. I then dusted distress ink over the card, wrapped a red ribbon round it and matted and layered it onto black and then white card.
The vertical panel is also using a stamp from the same set. I coloured it using Promarkers, dusted distress over it and matted it onto black card
The main image is from the flora and fauna set of stamps. I coloured this using Promarkers and went over the poppies using pencils. I cut the image out leaving a narrow margin around the edge and then matted it onto black card, cutting this out and again leaving a edging. I attached it to the card using glue gel. Finally I added a bow.
