This is another card I made for the VSN challenge.  I stamped the poppy image from There She Goes. It was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink on Fabriano paper. It was embossed with clear embossing powder and colored with Tumbled Glass, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmelade Re-inker and Aqua Painter. I tried out a Watercolor Bleed technique that Christine Okken posted on her blog a while back. The image was cut with Label 12 Nestabilities and adhered to another piece of Fabriano Paper with Dimensionals.


The card base is a 3 5/8″ x 11″ piece of Sour Apple cardstock folded in half. The sentiment and butterfly are from the Poppies set. They were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Fabriano paper. The sentiment was cut with Ribbon Tag Nestabilities, the butterfly with scissors. The inside of the tag was colored with Spiced Marmelade Re-inker, the butterfly with Tumbled Glass.

Green Gingham Ribbon finishes off the card. thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
