Poppy Inspired

Hello my friends! Oh boy, I can't believe it's already September. I wish it would be June again and summer would start all over. This month at Stamping Sensation we have perfect theme to look back to the summer: Poppy Inspired. Here is also a photo you can take inspiration from. Isn't it lovely!

I made few post-it notes covers and did some water coloring with felt-pens. It was my number one coloring technique before I tried Promarkers. I still love it! It's really easy. You just have to scribble with water base felt pen to acetate, pick up color from there with water-brush and start coloring.

 I made3 different style for post-it notes covers with 4 different design.

Style 1
Sentiment: May you always have someone to share your joys and sorrows!
 On front of the red covers some flowers are popped up with foam tape.


Sentiment: Most beautiful moments in life often come as  surprise

Style 3
These was my two little poppy inspired projects. Go over to Stamping Sensation blog to see more stunning projects and to get all the instructions how to participate on the challenge. As always, there is awesome prize for the winner. Our sponsor is Stamps by Chloe. You can win this fantastic prize: 

All these poppies made me think summer. And one thing that goes with summer are cornflowers. They are my favorite flowers. I couldn't resist not to make some post-it notes covers with them.
