Painted Poppies are such beautiful stamps. I love adding a soft colour to the flowers and leaving the rest of the card clean and simple.
To help you understand how to made these cards I made this step by step how to – which I hope will help you. All the supplies I used will be listed at the end, along with some other cards I have made with this stamp set. Click on the photographs to enlarge them.
- I lay the poppy outline stamp onto my card and moved the stem where I wanted it then stamped it in black ink. I cleaned the stamp with a baby wipe, then lay it onto the card again and arranged it so the flower is looking the other way. I also stamped the leaf outline to a stem.
- I used the solid flower head stamp next, and inked it up with Festive Berries and stamped it off onto a piece of scratch paper so I would get a second generation stamped image on the poppies. I stamped the solid leaf stamp straight onto the card with Frayed Leaf.
- My second generation stamping wasn’t perfect but this was fine as I was going to use my waterbrush to smooth out the colour. I smooshed some ink onto my acrylic block so I could pick up some more colour to add shadows where the darkest areas would be. I shaded the leaf the same way and added a bit of Frayed Leaf to the stems.
- To finish this card I used the sentiment “you make me” and “happy” from the same stamp set.
- Now I have a card front I can finish out with some sequins or glitter and then stick it onto a card base.
