Peach Poppies

Hi and welcome back to another fabulous color combo from the team at Color Throwdown.  Check out this week's colors:



Once again, I proved to myself how the inspiration photo guides my design choices.  I went with flowers for my card this week :)


As I said in my last post that used this set, it is my absolute favorite non-Birdie Brown MFT set.  I just love these poppies.  I die-cut and stamped the poppies before coloring them with Copics in peachy tones with grey centres.  On the card base, I adhered a strip of black and white striped paper and then cut a smaller panel which I sponged with some Lake Shores ink.  I stamped the sentiment in Moon Rock (grey) ink and then mounted the panel onto the card base using foam tape.  Finally, I arranged the poppies and colored the centres with Wink of Stella.


Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Color Throwdown design team - they will amaze you as always!

I haven't decided yet whether I'll enter this into the 2016 Superstar challenge at MFT.  I need to see if I can come up with anything better before the deadline.

Stamps:  Delicate Pretty Poppies (MFT)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT), Lake Shores (SSS), Moon Rock (Altenew)
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It, Dots & Stripes Neutrals (MFT)

Karren

Poppies are some of my fave flowers and you've colored these so beautifully! Your sponging is perfection and that black and white stiped border just adds such a pop of interest! You rocked the colors!
