I just love the Sale-A-Bration DSP and the 2013-15 In-Colours and The chance to use both in the Just Add Ink and Freshly Made Sketches challenges was right up my alley.
I was a bit taken with the sketch and wanted to use my new stamp set Happy Watercolor, I also knew that the Sale-A-Bration Sweet Sorbet DSP would go perfectly with the poppy, and give some pretty interest to the background. I quite like sentiments put on sideways, particularly with this type of sketch, and I wanted to use Pistachio Pudding Ruffle Ribbon on the right of the flag instead of taking the card stock all the way across. I think it gives a pretty feel to the card.
I wanted to show you a close up of the flower and embellishment. I cut part of the poppy from a second image and layered it over the main image. I also cut down between the petals so they would curl up independently. The small embellishment was made using two of the punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, the scallop circle as the flower and the four petal punch as the leaves.
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to visit both of the challenge sites to check those creations too.
