This week's challenge takes me right back to Mallorca again as the island is awash with poppies in May & I just adore the sight of them. Here's my take on the theme & for it I have used Francoise Read's "Field of Poppies". I started by doing some "direct to paper" onto a piece of flat white card with some chalk inkpads & then stamped over this using Brilliance Graphite Black. I also stamped onto one of the lovely pages from the Perfect Prints pad & cut the poppies out. I coloured the rest of the image with my trusty Tombows before cutting out & layering onto black & red card. I then attached to the card blank & stamped the sentiment at the bottom. I gave the poppies some sculpting before sticking them to the image using some 3D foam pads. I gave them a nice glossy finish with Glossy Accents & set aside to dry.To finish I added some ribbon & the Ladybugs, lastly some tiny dots of black Stickles at the centres of the poppies.
