I've mentioned before that I love the Happy Watercolor stamp set. It is fun to use and includes such a good variety of stamps. I've been enjoying the poppy image but for this card I decided to use it in a totally different way.
I began with the Naturals White as my base cardstock. To that I added a 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock which I cut along both long sides using my fancy Finishing Touches edgelit die. Then on top of that I centred a 2" x 5 1/2" piece of Whisper White embossed with my Decorative Dots embossing folder.
I prepared three identical images of the poppy by stamping it on Whisper White using Cherry Cobbler ink. I cut each image down to measure 1 1/8" x 1 1/8" and, using my Cherry Cobbler marker, roughly coloured the background behind the poppies. Then I cut another three pieces of Whisper White measuring 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" onto which I adhered each of the poppy squares. Then I mounted those onto 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares of Cherry Cobbler. Finally I mounted the three framed images onto the card, spacing them carefully, using my dimensionals. I finished the card by stamping the bottom using another of the Happy Watercolor stamps.
It's a simple card but I think it has a lot of impact because of the colours and the layout. What do you think?
