Apricot Poppies on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps

This week's Throwback Tuesday features the Paint Fusion Poppy stamp set by Sheena Douglass.

I stamped the flowers and leaf sprig in Dove Grey Stazon onto watercolour card and coloured them with Distress Markers (dried marigold, evergreen bough, walnut stain).

Next I stamped the stems straight onto a piece of patterned paper (Potting Shed pad from Craftwork Cards)  then cut out the flowers/leaf and glued them in place. I added some glitter to the open poppy with some Sakura Quickie Glue Pen

To do the tag I used the Elisse Bigz die from Sizzix with watercolour card. For a more subtle look I inked up the poppy with the dried marigold marker, stamped it once onto scrap paper and then spritzed it with water before stamping onto the tag.

I added more colour with the markers and tied a ribbon through the centre hole (the sentiment is from Imagination Crafts).

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
