Poppies!




Stunning photo of poppies. I love the blury background and the depth which I tried to replicate in my card here.


Supplies:
Cardstock: Gina K luxury white
Stamp Sets: Delightful Dahilia and Botanical Silhouettes from PTI
Inks: Petal Pizzaz, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Poppy Parade from SU and Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories: Sponging tool

I did a lot of sponging and generational stamping to get the depth.
Love how it turned out.Hope you do too :)

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
