IndigoBlu Dinkie Poppy - Just Wanted To Say...Card

Today I have played with an IndigoBlu Dinkie poppy stamp.

I stamped two images of the poppy and then coated them in Versamark and then clear embossing powder, then heated to give a lovely raised look.  I then painted both with layers of Brusho.

For the base layer, I stamped another flower and made a mask, then splattered green and mauve dots of Distress Ink using a paint brush.  I then left to dry.

I returned to the other poppy and cut out some of the petals.  In the middle I used a metallic pen to add a little gold/green shimmer.  I curled some of the petals and used foam pads to keep some of them lifted. The remainder I stuck flat on top of the main poppy image.

I stamped the sentiment using Hobby Art Stamps "General Greetings CS016D) in Versafine "Black Onyx".  Finally, I added some dew drops to the poppy using droplets of Glossy Accents.

I decided that the Poppy looked odd just kind of floating in the middle of the card, so I added a couple of leaves
