POPPIES ON FIRE
I've got a bonus day off work today so I'm a happy crafting bunny!
I think my love of poppies has hit a new high! This digistamp is from the absolutely fantabulous Aurora Wings and she is called "Elf with poppy blooms". Isn't she gorgeous?
I spent most of last weekend in bed with man-flu but did manage to do some colouring. I spent about six hours on this beauty, and I love it! I am an avid fan of Alyce Keegan (THE QUEEN of colouring , in my opinion), you can find her blog here. I watched one of her many tutorials, and thought I'd have a go, venturing into new worlds of colouring. I've conquered a few of my colouring fears and also been a little adventurous with my colour combos (listed below).
I have made a very simple card with my little elf....I didn't want the image to be lost under lots of embellishments. She is simply layered up onto red and green card, wrapped in some twine, and a little poppy added.
Hope you like her!
