Summer Card Camp week3

I found the colours this week a bit easier to use.... seeing the red made me think of Poppies so I pulled out my Poppy Background and had a bit of a play.  Things didn't quite turn out how I pictured them in my mind so I ended up with three poppy backgrounds on my desk.... So far one has made it to a completed card.
Summer Stamp Camp Week 3

I started by clear embossing the background onto some light taupe card and using Barn Door red distress, used the resist technique to colour the poppies.  I matted this onto a light brown card.  The panel was then pop dotted onto the dark chocolate card base.  I embossed the sentiment in white EP then used Swiss Dot folder to dry emboss the bottom half of the card.  I added the white and brown grosgrain ribbon and a butterfly punched out of the brown card and distressed with the red ink. 

So now I have some other poppy panels to play with.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks also for all the lovely comments that you leave. I really appreciate them

Take care

Dawn

You did really well with the colour combo Dawn. I would not have found this palette so very easy to work with, so well done.

The more I see this poppy the more I like it :) Love the texture with the dots in the bg and the addition of the butterfly with this is perfect!

Love the pop of the bright colors against the black background.
