Regal Poppies


Happy Wednesday peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on the Dynamic Duos Blog.
The colors this week are Regal Rose and Basic Gray. 



I haven't used regal rose in such a long time.
I got some new stamps this week and I am in love with this one. 
It is called "Pleasant Poppies" it is a large Back Ground stamp.
I used just a portion of it for this card. I masked off part of it with some post it notes and just inked up the portion I wanted. 
I used black stazon to stamp onto some white card stock.
I then colored the image with my aqua painter and ink pads, using regal rose and a little bit of daffodil delight and pear pizzazz.



The base of the card is basic gray and then I used another piece of gray and embossed it with the square lattice EF. The ribbon on here is some retired regal rose grosgrain.
I added some scallops down the side made with the perfect trimmings die. 
How about that cute sentiment tag? I made that with the new Bitty Banners Framelit die. The sentiment itself 
comes from the Easy Events stamp set.

I am also adding this to the SUO Challenges to make something frilly.
I thing the bow and scallops with pearls are a bit frilly

Well, that is all from me today and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!
