Purple Poppies Birthday Wishes with a Black Mat
I love layering flowers. My favorites are from Honey Bee Stamps, but recently I saw Tina Smith using this beautiful poppy die from PaperTrey Ink. It is a smaller poppy flower than some of my other dies and I decided to give it a try. It is very easy to assemble and as you can see you have beautiful flowers when done.
Poppies come in a variety of colors. There are even purple ones. I used the layers for many purple flowers from Gina K. Designs Lovely Lavender cardstock. Shading and shadows were added to the edges of the petals, along with the veins with a darker purple ink. The veins were enhanced with Copic Markers.
I had a single flower leftover from the previous cards I made. I wanted a smaller background to the flower and cut a white panel using a Little B Frames die. A larger panel was cut from black cardstock. The two were adhered together with liquid glue. Low loft foam tape was added to the back and the panel was adhered to a top folding cardbase.
Low loft foam tape was added to the back of the flower and the stem and leaves were adhered in place with liquid glue.
The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed white. A sentiment label die was used to cut it out. It was adhered in place with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape.
