P for Poppies

My final post today is a card I made for the Alphabet Challenge 'P for Poppies' and then found it also fit some of my other favourite challenges.

I die cut the poppy from white card and coloured it with red and green Promarkers, colouring on both sides of the card several times to give a good depth of colour.  I had already had a 'trial run' with a scrap of paper in my MISTI to line up the sentiment, so I placed the card blank into MISTI and stamped the sentiment a couple of times to get a lovely deep green.  I then attached the poppy with Stick & Stay glue.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" warm white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Prim Poppy' die
     Woodware 'Wheat' sentiment stamp
     Versafine Olympia Green ink

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Maximum White Space     
     Alphabet Challenge - P for Poppies
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - October Challenge

I have a similar poppy die by MB Kath, mine just has more flowers, and the sentiment is lovely too. I love the Promarker colours and the ink matches perfectly. x
