Your own kind of beautiful

I have another card for you using Paint-a-Flower Poppy by Altenew. I have, yet again, coloured it up with my RV90-series Copic markers. I’ve already done this twice; one as a no-lines version here and another with repeated stamping here.

Like the previous version of this card (see here) I have cut the flower out by hand. For the background I’ve used the Feathery Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in the colour Milled Lavender. The sentiment is part of the Paint-a-Flower Paeonia Japonica and I stamped it using the Sugarplums mini cubes set. To finish it off I drew in some dots with the same Copic marker as I used on the darkest part of the flower and put some enamel dots around the text.

Copics uses: RV00, RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99, G21, G24, G28, E74, E79

Birthday poppy

I don’t often play with panel dies, but when I saw this Trellis one from Altenew I knew I had to have it. It’s been die cut as white card stock and then I used my Distress Ink (one of the few I have that’s not Oxide) in the colour Peeled Paint and deliberately avoided getting it even. As the background behind it, I used one of the new watercolour background panels from Lili of the Valley. Then I cut the Trellis die cut apart so that I only kept about 2/3 of it. The Paint-a-Flower Poppy has been coloured with my Copic markers and then cut out by hand. After I glued it onto the background and trellis, I used one of my other Copic marker colours to draw in some dots in a colour to match the distress. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a part of the Paint-a-Flower Poppy set, whereas “dearest friend” is off the Statement Flowers set and I used two different colours from the Zesty Limes ink cubes set. A few transparent drops and voila, card done!
