Here is my entry for the UK Stampers Sunday Challenge. The theme was linked to Remembrance Sunday and the image had to be of a poppy. Here is mine.

The poppy was stamped after selectively colouring the flower and the leaves with watercolour brush markers. This was stamped on plain white card and then waterbrushed to produce a watercoloured finish. The image was then carefully cut out. The stamp used was from the Aspects of Design Floral plate. This was then applied with foam pads onto a pre-prepared cuttlebug textured mat. The mat was made by embossing a plain card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder then spraying with passion red and pink ink Glimmer Mists. This was rubbed over with the Versamark pad and this was heat embossed with blue pearl embossing powder. The mat was then matted on dark blue and pink card.

The C6 card was made from light blue cardstock and a printed acetate sleeve applied which had been inkjet printed with a design from the Artilicious filigree fusion CD Rom from Glenda Waterworth. The sleeve was applied with purple metallic eyelets and the poppy and mats adhered centrally. The acetate was very difficult to photograph to avoid reflections but you will get the general overall effect from the picture.

Hope you like it :-)
