Striped Poppy ~ CCMC417

Happy Thursday stampers!  It's Create with Connie and Mary challenge day!  This week is sketch week and look at this dandy!  It was a little perplexing to me at first.  My interpretation is looser this week.  I pretty much just went with the stripe theme.....and my stripes are running the opposite direction too.  I'm happy with my end result though!

I used a new set called {Penned and Painted}.  I think this will be a really cool set to do lots of experimenting with.  I can see all kinds of techniques used with this set.  

For this card I stamped the images twice, fussy cut them all out and layered them together, curling up the edges of the top layer.  I was trying to make the flower resemble a poppy.
The stripes are stamped with the big background stamp called {Brushstrokes}.  Very cool.  I like how both of the stamps look watercolored although I  assure you there was none of that this go around.

I even had to find a way to include the little ladybug from the's simply adorable!!!

I hope you'll find time to join us over at CCMC and participate in this interesting sketch challenge!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!


  1. I've been really eyeing that set and you've pushed me over the top to get it! Love the striped DSP you used all over the idea! Great job with the sketch this week!

  2. I love your card Jenny. I really like the black and red together. Cute touch with the little lady bird :-)

  3. This is a happy card! Love the little lady bug tucked in the corner!

  4. The flower is so pretty! I love the stripes and wish I thought of it!

  5. You had me fooled - I was thinking..."another gorgeous watercolor by Jenny, how does she do it?" Then I read about Penned and Painted and got excited that maybe even I could do this! Great card!

  6. This is just lovely Jenny - the fussy cutting on your flower definitely makes it feel like a poppy. Love the dramatic striped background too and as for the ladybird - super sweet!
