Poppy Seed Challenge # 1



Today, I came across this CHALLENGE at Lisa's Poppy Paperie blog. I love her work and so I decided I would participate in this challenge.

Now, I have to tell the truth, this card turned out way different than I imagined. I think I like it though. The process was interesting and fun. Though I had originally planned on using ribbon roses as my light yellow accent they just didn't go with the flowers I stamped (in my mind, at least).






I really do like the color combination I chose though. I used Papertrey Ink's Terra Cotta Tile & Lemon Tart cardstock, using the Vintage Tea Dye Duo for distressing the edges. And I stamped the flowers from PTI Friends Til the End set on Rustic Cream before distressing the edges and then adding score tape and glitter so I could give the card the BLING (crystals) needed as one of the SEEDS of the challenge.

The other seeds were: Use light yellow some where (that was my Lemon Tart card stock and the yellow COPICs I used when coloring the interior of my last seed, which was use a flower image.

I liked this challenge - would be pretty easy to combine this with some others if you "need" to complete more than one challenge.

I also have to admit that one thing I kind of like on the card was purely an accident. After stamping my sentiment on the card, I accidentally dropped my Dark Chocolate (PTI) inkpad onto the card stock. In order to cover my boo-boo, I lightly touched different areas of the card with the inkpad for the same look in multiple places.

Those are wonderful rosettes, they look easier to make than the chiffon flowers. I've dropped an ink pad before and had to cover up. I like the skewed central image layout too.

Your card is fantastic! There's so many details to see. Love the subtle text background, the wire around the ribbon, the bling around the edges, the coloring in and around the flowers, the distressing. Beautiful work!

So striking and I love the glitter touches. Nicely done!

The roses are really gorgeous, even though they didn't end up making it onto this project. Thanks so much for sharing your "oops" with the ink pad -- that kind of stuff happens to me a lot. :)
