Purple poppies


I used this Woodware stamp a while ago for a magazine commission and coloured the poppies red. I stamped another as I wanted to see what it would like coloured purple and here it is.  The card is 7x7 so I used an old HOTP scrapbook paper which is the perfect colour to match my image. The corner die is Sue Wilson and the sentiment is LOTV. I also used some old raffia lace. I used to use lots of this and still have several colours in one of my ribbon boxes.  It seems to be a week for using old favourite embellishments.

Looks great in purple! Lots of lovely purpleness here with your paper that you've matches wonderfully with your colouring. The corner die cut is a nice pop of green against the purple. Debra x
