Two posts in one day. For my second post i have a card to show direct stamping onto card stock, i love doing this but always try each stamp onto scrap paper to see how i really want it to turn out. Poppy outer stamp is separate to the middle one as is the stem, all from Elzybells, sentiment is Penny Black Hugs sheet. Torn some green card ,distressed it a little with old black inkpad, bit of glamour dust for middle of poppy which is stamped with Vivid Red dye ink pad...not too much as this one would obviously be used for a sombre occassion. Found a few challenges to go for and i know sympathy cards mostly show subtle soft colours but I went with the 'Field of Poppies' and as i was watching QVC...saw Martha Stewart Fringe scissors I decided to make a fringey grass for my card.

So Charisma is Sympathy, Crafty Catz is Tearing, Crafty Sentiments is Remembrance as is Rainbow Ladys (new blog to me) and also Daring Cardmakers, I think my dare was straight onto the card!!!
