Paper and Such Poppies

This is my 2nd post of the day so if you are here for the Squigglefly challenge, scroll down or click HERE!

Today I have the pleasure of showing you a card I've made from the soon to be released "Poppies" stamp set by Paper and Such!  It will be available for purchase tomorrow in the Paper and Such Store, but you have a chance of winning this gorgeous set simply by leaving a comment here on my blog!  PLUS, you can increase your chances of winning by leaving a comment on my fellow DT members' blogs!  Links are below!    

This set comes with one image and 5 sentiments.  Here's a sneak peek!






Aren't those poppies so pretty?!  I decided to do the "out of the box" technique so that one of the poppies could creep outside the oval panel.  You can find a great tutorial on this technique HERE.  If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, you know I love to color with my copics and this image was so fun to color!  Here are the copics I used:




I added a thin outline around the image in BG10 to make it pop off the white a bit more.  

Don't forget to leave me a comment to qualify for a chance to win this set!  Increase your chances by commenting on my DT members' blog, too!  All 5 of the new releases go on sale tomorrow in the Paper and Such Store!  Now off you go to see what the other DT members have done and be sure leave a comment!  Winners will be posted on August 10th!

  6. I love OOB cards - or graphic images or just about anything. Think I'll try it with quilt scraps next - maybe even on a card!
