Sparkling poppies

It's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. The theme is Anything Goes with a stamp and a Die

Our sponsor this month is Tattered Lace who are very generously offering one lucky winner a £50 store voucher to spend at their on line store. The award winning Tattered Lace company needs little introduction, they are synonymous with quality products coupled with the unique style and flair of Stephanie Weightman, you will find the whole range of products on the website here as well as regular inspiration on their blog here.

The main panel on my card is inked with distress inks. After making sure that inks are dry, I stamped the image from DoCraft Botanical Print set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Opline embossing powder. It is clear EP with cosmic shimmer. Then I added more distress inks on top to make the image pop out. 

I die cutted MemoryBox Prim Poppy out of the main panel and then die cutted same poppies out of white cardstock. With Brushable Glue I adhered Lator Gator and Gypsy Red glitters to the white poppies. Using inlaid technique I pieced everything together.

Background layer is also inked with Distress inks. I used Memento inks to stamp text and large grass from  DoCraft Botanical Print set and short grass with Flonz Stamps. With Sakura Glue pen I added little dots of Gypsy Red glitter to mimic flowers growing in the grass.
The little Ladybug is made with Glossy Accents. I placed oval drops of Glossy Accents to the wax paper and let them dry. Then I colored them with red and black markers. Before adhering them to final project I colored bottom of the Ladybug white. Otherwise it is transparent.

 To add more interest and texture to the background, I used Imagination Crafts Honey Suckle stencil, Versamark ink and Opline embossing powder. Little butterflies are die cutted with dies from Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Dimensional Butterflies set.

I hope you join with us this month. The theme is simple - dies and stamps. And prize is awesome! Take a look to the Stamping Sensation blog to see rules and inspiration from the design team.
