Engraved Poppy

ENGRAVED POPPY - from Hero Arts

I LOVE POPPIES!!! I love flowers in general, most of my cards have flowers, leaves or birds.

All the stamps I used for this card are from Hero Arts. I really love the newly release Hero Arts stamps. When I saw this engraved poppy, I knew I needed it.

The poppy has been coloured with Copic Markers. I created three different layers with dimensional dots.

For the background, I distressed a piece of Gina K Luxury Kraft cardstock with Distress Inks. I stamped the background stamp "Friend definition" with Vintage Sepia ink (versafine).

Stamps: Engraved Poppy, Friend definition (Hero Arts).

Inks: vintage sepia (versafine), tuxedo black (memento).

Accessories: nestabilities (label 8), copic markers, dimensional dots.
