these little golf carts sit so well with the landscape.

coloured the top section, to make cloud shapes with "tumbled glass" distress ink.

classic ribbons, I stamped with Justrite "You are the best" sentiment stamps...outline tree border to the right. added a few flying bird shapes..also added a few mini gears...

Darling and Arched poppies..

Good morning,  crafty friends, followers and visitors..

DT card for Oyster stamps.. new spring 2014 release..Memory box/Poppy stamp dies.

One of my favourite flowers are poppies, so had to play with these poppy dies..

Darling poppies & Arched poppies dies, I cut with green card, two of each..then red crepe paper for the flowers, I cut a few layers and glued into the die cuts..really hard to explain as i make flowers up as I go along..
also decided to add a few drops of crystal lacquer into the layers..this has made them rock hard, so they will not crush..will do this again..brill stuff I have had for years and not used.. added  Plush bow & classic ribbon with a sentiment ..butterfly Effera wings & Rhone wings..

The soft green spray is done with a stencil, I inked through with distress bundled sage, embossing paste..then glamour dust.. on the main card I just inked through.
Lacey die cuts are spellbinders Majestic elements lables twenty these dies..
