Island Poppies ~ DD41 & FMS74


Hello everyone!  It's Dynamic Duos Saturday again and we have a fabulous monochromatic color combo for you this week....Island Indigo and Pool Party!
  I also used the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches to help me along.  
Layers is the name of the game for my card this week.  I started by stamping the Medallion stamp in Sahara Sand, then layered French Script in Pool Party and finally stamped the Pleasant Poppies in Stazon Black ink.  I stamped the poppies again on a piece watercolor paper, colored the poppy heads with markers, using the layered marker technique, and fussy cut each head out.  I popped them up with  dimentionals after spritzing them with Champagne Shimmer spray.  They look so pretty all sparkled up!  I also colored the poppy stems with a Sahara Sand marker.  Lastly, I added some layered ribbon to the bottom corner as well as a few pearls.



Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, Medallion, French Script
Paper: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Watercolor
Ink: Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Stazon Black, Island Indigo
Accessories: Champagne Shimmer spray, Crochet Trim, Natural Trim, Ribbon Originals ribbon pack, pearls, Blender Pen

Thanks for taking a peek!
Jenny
