Poppy Cube.

It is time again for the midway reminder for the
The theme as usual is Anything goes.......but not cards.
We have a new sponsor this challenge

The DT. were given a selection of samples
to play with .
I had six cardboard slide shapes and some ribbon
amongst my goodies.
I immediately thought Cube (as you do)!
I painted all 6 squares with a tester pot paint in 'Dusted Fondant'.
It is a lovely delicate pale pink shade.
I used the Inkylicious  'Watercolour Poppies'
clear polymer stamps set to ink a poppy
on all four sides and one larger poppy  on the top .
I created the grass effect using Stampscapes 'Reeds 067B
over stamping several time to give a dense cluster.
Both the poppies and reeds were stamped in DI 'Walnut Stain'.
I coloured the poppies with DI 'Tattered Rose'
by  first stamping the pad onto my craft mat
and then  picking up the ink with a fine paint brush.
I looped the ribbon through the slits on four of the squares
and attached together to form a box.
The last two were then threaded through top to bottom to form
the cube.
