Poppy pattern

Today I’ve been playing with my distress markers and water on a background stamp from Penny Black called ‘poppy pattern’. I love colouring directly on the stamp, spritzing with water and then placing my cardstock on top and seeing what you get. It really gives you a deconstructed look to the stamp with very soft edges and blended colours.

I used Candied Apple, Peeled Paint and Black Soot on this image and you can see how the black after mixing with the water and red have now made a darker red in the centre of the flowers.

I got my inspiration from these challenges today:

I like how Tracey in her card used 2 main colours and I have adopted that same idea with the red and green on my card along with the flower being the central focal point.  I changed the sketch up to be horizontal, mounted my floral piece on a black panel then attached both to a white card base, along with one of my favourite sentiments from the Altenew ‘Label Love’ stamp set.

I thought about adding some twine or sequins but then decided not to and keep the focus on the flowers and colours.


Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Love the result you got here Tristan. That stamp is gorgeous. So glad you didn’t add twine or sequins as this is just perfect on it’s own. Thanks so much for joining our Gallery this week at Just Us Girls.
