Well this wasn't a hard challenge for me since I still hadn't cleaned up from the card I created yesterday which you can see here. In fact I had already die cut a bunch of these Bold Blossoms flowers out and had the bird from the Winter Woods set die cut and stamped already and used the same sentiment stamp set so the only other supplies I had to grab was ink, white cardstock, Copic markers, a handful of silver sequins and the Meadow Greens stamp & dies set.
The inspiration for my card is the photo above which is from Park Cities Petals who I follow on Instagram. Their arrangements and florals are amazing! So when I saw this big bouquet of deep red poppies I knew I wanted to use them as inspiration for a card. I used to grow poppies at our old house when I had really good soil, they were beautiful in oriental reds, yellows and pinks and were the size of teacups.
For my card, I started out by stamping my sentiment from the Graceful Greetings stamp set in black ink, then inked up the ferns from the Meadow Greens set in Ocean Tides ink and stamped off, stamping the ferns twice on the front of my card. Next I die cut three sets of leaves from the same set, Meadow Greens and stamped those full Ocean Tides ink. After that, I stamped my flowers in Ruby Red ink (SU) and added shading using Copic markers, then stamped the centers in black, popping up the largest flower and it's center with foam adhesive. All that was left was to arrange and adhere my pieces and then I added black glitter to the flower centers and three silver sequins.
