Poppy Love

Well I couldn't wait to try out my new stamps made by Faye and as I also had a challenge in mind I killed two birds with one stone so to speak.
I love poppies almost as much as butterflies and love the vibrant colours that they come in. I used a Woodware Stamp  Called 'Poppy' ADS506 and stamped onto watercolour paper so that I could colour with my Marv Le Plume II water colour pens by scribbling onto an acrylic blog and picking the colour up with a dampened paint brush.  I have used just four colours here, red orange, brown and green plus a gold gel pen.The edging is of course made using Faye's Fantastic stamp set  'FaDoodles ' CWSD226  in the Clearly Whimsy Stamps Collection.  If  your in USA you can purchase from their store and in the UK from Tracy at Dies To Die For  but if you fancy getting your hands on a free one then see my Blog Candy in the post above as I am giving one away. Just enter your details for a chance to win.
The Allsorts challenge this week is a photo inspiration and has these colours  which are just right for poppies. Layered up onto orange cardstock and then red which is adhered to the orange backing card using 3D pads for extra dimension.

Entering into the following challenge:
