CC216, FTTC13

If you came for There She Goes Sneak Peek Blog Hop, Please scroll down. Thank you.

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...


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.

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^^

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~
