Little Claire First Blog Hop - DT card

Welcome to Little Claire first Blog Hop! For more details about the Hop and links to the other DT's card please visit Little Claire's blog.

This is my card for the Blog Hop...



The stamp I used for my card is Swirly Whirlies Poppies. I begun my stamping the image onto cream card with a dark green ink pad and also onto white card with a black ink. The image I stamping in black I then coloured the poppy heads in with ProMarkers. I added gold lines with a gold gel pen. I cut the green stamped image and the gold frame with Circle Nestabilities.



I cut out the coloured poppy heads and added them to the green stamped image with foam pads. I cut a gold and dark red circle with Lacey Circles Nestabilities. I attached all the cirlce together. On a Kraft card blank I stamped the poppy image with a dark brown ink pad. I added the cirlces to the card. To finish I added a peel-off greeting by Little Claire and gold dots.



My letter for the Blog Hop is...



the next blog to hop to is Helen R.
