New Stamp Man Challenge- Poppies

Hurray, it's time for a new challenge over at The Stamp Man. It's quite a special one this fortnight, our hostess for this challenge, Janet, is asking for Poppy creations for a special reason. Check out The Stamp Man Challenge blog for more info.

My card was made with the glorious Hero Arts Clings Stamp-Engraved Flower and part of a sentiment from the Aspects of design sheet 621 Butterfly beauties. The poppy is coloured using watercolour pencils, with a few spots of black Stickles for stamen. A stamp this gorgeous doesn't need much more, so I layered it up quite simply, with a few swirls and some raffia that I've had since I first started crafting.

Well after having a glorious week of sunshine here, it's now threatening rain, so my plans for the day are severely curtailed..... ah well, better go back to crafting........

I'm entering this into the following challenges-
Crafts and Me Swirls challenge
Papertake Anything goes
Try it on Tuesday Something old, something new (new stamp image, old raffia)
