Yellow Poppy Easel Card

The Poppy heart stamp is quickly moving up my list of favourite stamps because of it's versatility. The poppies can be coloured with allsorts of colours and media.
The yellows work very well with the blues of the card and give a spring feel to the easel card. For the base of the easel I used the Rememberance Poppy and decoupaged one of the poppy flowers so the front stands up. The Remberance Poppy stamp is a single stamp and 50p from each one is donated to the Royal British Legion. For the background I used versamark ink and brushed with pale blue mica powder which gives a lovely sheen. Thank you for visiting Debbie

I love the subtlety of your background stamping & the softens of the blue cardstock used for matting - it certainly gives the yellow poppy some "zing" without overwhelming it. A super idea using the Remembrance Poppy to complement it too - perhaps it will fall into my shopping basket .......

What a lovely card - I can see why you like this stamp and you have used it so well in your designs. Hope you are well and my thanks for dropping by the Cupboard. I'm really out of touch with the crafting world and blogging - but hopefully will be about more to see your work.

Lovely combination of the pale blues and the yellow Debbie. That poppy heart stamp is really starting to appeal to me and I was determined not to buy any more heart. I already have loads I hardly ever use, lol!
