Scenic Poppy

Scenic Poppy I’ve had this Stampendous stamp on my desk for a while, trying to think of how I would color it. Out with the Copics, they’re sooooo fun. This time around I colored the poppies and scribbled a darker shade on an acetate sheet. I then lifted the darker shade off of the acetate sheet with the same color copic as I base coated the poppies with and it gives a subtle shading on the poppies. I’m still learning with the copics but try to use them every chance I get. I used aquapainters to color the sky, barn and land. The frames are accomplished with rectangle Nestabilities then airbrushed with two copic markers to mirror the green grass and the blue skyline. Layered with teal and rose cardstock cut with scallop scissors and anchored on a rose folded card, topped off with a Stampendous sentiment, embossed with white powder. The inspiration for this card was a Limited Supplies Challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use leftovers on my desk. Thankfully for me, this day my desk was filled, so I had tons to choose from. Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous Paper: White Fabriano watercolor paper, teal and rose Colormates Ink: Black Brilliance, SU Really Rust, SU Ruby Red, SU Bashful Blue Copics: RV11, G21, G24, E31, E33
