Poppies for Rememberance

I made this card to send to my sister. Dad loved all flowers and had poppies in his garden too so I thought this image was quite appropriate to remember him by.


The digi image is by  Justinklined and called Poppy Cluster. I have painted using my Marvey LePlumeII water colour pens by scribbling the colours onto a perspex block and picking the paint up with a wet paint brush and then blending in with additional water. Finished off with a gold gel pen.
Die cuts used are  Crafts - Too Square die scalloped edge and SU's Large modern Label. Striped card is  recycled from The Doc's custard tart box  and the sentiment is a gold sticker from my stash.
