Poppy Parade Answers The Challenge!

By | 08/06/2013

I’ve had the Poppy Parade stamp sitting on my shelf for a while now, just waiting for the perfect sketch to use it with.  This is a very large stamp that works as a background stamp or a focal point.  I love the outline look of the flowers.  It’s a perfect stamped image to watercolor as well.  These flower images shaded with a blender pen or aqua painter are actually beautiful.

Today, I just wanted to give a hint of the image on my background.


Card Details:

Papers:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Modern Medley Designer Paper

Inks:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Black StazOn

Stamp Set:  Happy Day and Poppy Parade

Accessories:  Metal Designer Button, Regals Button, Large Pearls, Cherry Cobbler Ribbon, Big Shot, Labels Framelits

I love the layered buttons on top of the bow!  The ribbon and bow are quite wide and I wanted to just add a little more interest and get that circular element from the sketch in.

You can see that I really followed the sketch fairly closely.  I attached the ribbon all the way across the card front and I layered buttons on top of the bow instead of tucking it under the label framelit.

Here is the original sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge for this week!


Imagine what you have in your stamping supply stash that you could use with this sketch.  Maybe you don’t have the labels framelits, maybe you can just cut a rectangular shape or use a circle instead.  If you don’t have any coordinating ribbon, perhaps you can use baker’s twine or a strip of paper decorated with a border punch.  The possibilities are endless!
