Hello everyone~
It's a gloomy rainy day here in Texas. My mood is nothing related to the weather but I'm very scared about swine flu... Please, please be careful, everyone, especially my friends in Texas. I really hope the flu won't spread so much...I know I'm so helpless in this point...

皆さん、こんにちは~
テキサスは、今日は雨の一日となりました。私の気分は、この天気とは関係ありませんが、豚インフルエンザ、とっても心配です。。。皆さん、特にテキサス州に在住のお友達、十分気を付けて下さい。このこの時点で、自分の力だけでは何もできませんが、インフルエンザがあまり広まらないことを祈っています。

OK, enough for whining!
I made this poppy card for my FIRST submission to Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC13). I also found SCS Color Combination challenge216 (CC216) was the combo I wanted to try. Perfect!! Kill two birds with one stone :)
The image was colored with dye inks (reinkers) and aqua painters. I layered just the poppy flower to give more dimensions. The pearls are so sticky and I think they like to stick to my fingers than papers, lol.

気分を変えて。。。
このポピーのカードを作って、Flourishes Timeless Tuesdayチャレンジ(FTTC13)へ初めて参加しました。それから、SCSのカラーコンビネーションチャレンジ216(CC216)が、丁度使いたかった色と同じでした。と言うわけで、一石二鳥でチャレンジができました^^
イメージは、ダイインク(インカー)と水彩筆で色を付け、ポピーの花だけ、重ねて貼っています。パールのシール部分が、とっても粘着があって、紙よりも私の指にくっ付いて大変でした(笑)


Stamps: Poppy Patch, Ornamental Elements (Flourishes), sentiment (PTI)
Paper: real red, basic black, old olive (SU), vintage cream (PTI)
Ink: India Black (Superior), real red, old olive, always artichoke, summer sun (SU), Distress fired brick (Ranger)
Accessories: pearls (Michael's)

Tools: Nestabilities (Spellbinders), eyelet border punch (SU), CB embossing folder (Provo Crafts)

Thank you for stopping by~
見に来てくれて有難うございました。

豚インフルエンザの件、テキサスで患者さんがいると聞いてMakiさんのことを思い出して心配していました。どうぞ、気を付けてくださいね。
