There is a house on my way to work that has the most gorgeous plot of poppies. I can't wait to see them bloom again.
I tried out the technique Dawn showed on Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday: Sponged Stamping. I like the technique, but I think the next time I try I will have to go with different colors. I used Botanical Silhouettes, the only solid stamp I have from PTI. I inked the top of the poppies with Festive Berries Distress Ink, and the bottoms with Fired Brick. Thank goodness for the MISTI to help lining the stamps up! There isn't that much of a contrast, but it was fun to try! The stems and grass were inked with Squeezed Lemonade on the top and Peeled Paint on the bottom. I inked the top of the panel with Peacock Feathers and the bottom with Pealed Paint.
I adhered the panel to a white card base and stamped a sentiment to finish it off.
