Penny Black "Poppy Time 40-323" Card

Today I've played with a Penny Black Inc. cling stamp called "Poppy Time - 40-323" to create this card. 

On white card, I stamped the poppy image using a fade out ink (Ink on 3), which provides a no line for colouring images.

I used the Ranger/Distress Water Colour pencil in "Candied Apple", applied with a brush to colour the poppy.  I them used a white Signo pen and a black fine liner pen to add extra detail.  I used the "Crushed Olive" Distress Water Colour pencil for the flower stems.

In the background, I used a light wash of "Speckled Egg" Distress Oxide Ink.  Once dry, I then used the same ink to darken the edges of the card, then lay the "Micro Dots Stencil" from Funky Fossil Designs to create the dotty background using the same ink.
