Some Poppies!

Here are a couple of cards made with a wonderful freebie image from Birds Cards. If you have an hour or so and enjoy using digital images, you really should stop by her blog and check out what she has to offer - incredible stuff!



The first card features a sentiment from the talented Ann Vento (Raindrop Echo Designs) and a couple of butterflies punched with a MS punch. Card base is black with Real Red matting on the image. The second card features a sentiment created by yours truly and has a card base of Real Red with black and Kiwi Kiss accents. I colored the images with - you guessed it - re-inkers (Real Red and Kiwi Kiss) and an aqua-painter! I picked up some "toothy" cardstock yesterday and am experimenting with this method of coloring on it - I think it shows great promise and hopefully I'll have some cards to share soon.

I've added a couple of poppy pictures to the slideshow at the top of the blog and wind permitting I'll take a few more this afternoon as there looked to be many more blooms when I left this morning. There's also lots more iris blooming too!

Thanks for visiting!

Chris,
What can I say? but lovely, just lovely. It really reaches out and grabs you.
I always seem to think a person needs to mix up the colors but this is one great card, and makes me rethink my colors
