Spritzed Poppies


A quick post from me today.  I'm playing along with Simon Says Monday Challenge - Spritz and Spray, and Timeout Challenge - Love Is A Flower You've Got To Let Grow.  I stamped my poppies (Clearly Besotted - retired) with Distress Inks onto mixed media card, then spritzed water over them.    When dry, I dotted some Distress Stickles on the centres of the flowers.  I coloured a snippet of card with green Distress Stains then diecut the 'happy' from the main panel and the green panel, and swapped them over.  A little washi tape is helping all the bits stay where they should be.  I added some washi tape down the left then added my cut panel to the card front.

  

Also I just wanted to give you a quick reminder that the Mixed Media Card Challenge - Red with an option of Hearts - is open until 25 February.
