Field Of Poppies
Really pleased with how these have turned out! I saw the idea on Kaths blog and thought it was beautiful but (as I heard a trimmie say) I'm on a 'stash diet' so I wasn't about to rush out n get that stamp... but as a real stroke of luck, later in the day I found this almost identical digi stamp freebie from Birds Cards (Theres a fair few good un's on there, I'm gonna use the VW van next, I think!)
In fact I liked it so much, I made two! The first one is actually more teal than the grey it looks in this pic and I spent AGES tying the blumming bows! Its not so easy to tell on the pic but the flower heads r actually paper pieced, the paper is printed from the Funky Hand Dreams Come True CD (using that LOADS lately!), I printed the design onto white card then onto the patterned paper and combined the two! I'm really gettin a taste for this cos laying the one design over the other hides the imperfections in my lack-of-cutting skills!
