Sweet Poppy Stencils "Poppies Leaf Aperture" Card


I've continued my play session, making this card using a couple of Sweet Poppy Stencils.

I started with "Sky Blue" Ranger Archival Ink, through the Sweet Poppy "Leaf Stencil".  Using a blending brush, I added more colour to the edges, leaving the central area almost bare of ink.

Next, I used the Sweet Poppy "Poppy SP!-135" stencil with two shades of Ranger Archival Ink:  "Peat Moss" for the leaves and the stems and "Poppy" for the poppies.

I added a few touches of black Posca Pen to the central area of the poppies.  I also used a 2B pencil to add shading to the base of the poppies, adding touches of white gel pen where the light would catch the edges of the poppies.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Sending Hugs" sentiment which is part of the Sweet Poppy "Octopus" stamp set.


  1. I think these poppies look so pretty within the stencilled leaf shape Sam, and the soft blue goes beautifully with the red and green of the poppies..a super card. x

  2. Beautiful combination of stencilled background and stencilled poppy
