If I Had a Flower - Double Trouble Challenge #6

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #6 "Some Thing, Any Thing and Every Thing" and using the Little Acres Stamp Set "Lots of Poppies", which was a random draw prize from Little Acres Challenge back three months ago.  Each month for six months I get Happy Mail (current stamp set for that month) from Little Acres, and I still have three more months...the stamp is always a pleasant surprise.  

Double Dare's Challenge #6 is for one week only, our 5th Monday in any given month is an "Anything Goes".  Please join us at Double Trouble to see the other DT member inspirations.  And Pair and Share with our previous partnering with Color Dare, Heart2Heart, Three Amigos and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and win additional chances for our random draw prize.  






Decided to make this card with very few layers because I didn't want to fussy-cut all the stems...so I stamped the field of poppies on the bottom edge of my white cardstock and colored them with a variety of Copic pens.  

Wasn't happy with them just being on the white cardstock and guess what, I fussy-cut another stamped item and used it to mask over the flowers.  Selecting a couple foliage stamps proceeded stamping lots of foliage in Pear, Sweet Leaf and Fern...very please with it.  On top sponged some blue and mink inks, stamped and colored the large poppy, stamped the sentiment in green leaf and added Momento London Fog because it was too light (closest to Mink).  


Popped up the large poppy and then stamped the same poppy field on the side border of the inside in Momento London Fog

Also Submitted to the following Challenges
ColorMyHeart Color Dare #303 using the 3rd column of the TicTacToe board (along with Willow, Black and White Daisy)

Heart2Heart "Fresh Air Fun"

Those poppies are stunning with the bright red. Red is the hardest color to work with and you really did these nicely!

I don't enjoy fussy cuttin', but masking sure makes a gorgeous piece of art. If I cut a mask, I'm saving that baby til it falls apart! Your card is just gorgeous and that little extra you put into it really shows. I love that you stamped on the inside as well. I'm so glad you shared this with us at the Southern Girls Challenge!
