Blue poppies

  
Hi everyone, I hope you're well and had a good weekend!

I love making cards with flowers on them and poppies are one of my favourites. 

The stamp was inked with distress ink and spritzed with water before stamping and I moved some of the colour about with a wet brush.

Linking up to Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge - Watercolour, Uniko Studios - Love and Friendship and CAS-ology - NBUS (never before used poppy stamp set).  Also for Less Is More where this week's theme is Friends.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a great rest of the week! xx
