The digital image of the poppy is free to download from the blog and the challenge this week is to use it!
So I have! I really must apologise for the wonky photo - I just don't know what happened here. possibly the elation of it still being light when I got home from work. Not sure, so just tilt your head slightly and it will look fine!
I've used plain cardstock for mounting the image onto - black green and red, all from my stash. I've rounded and inked edges too to soften it.
I've coloured the image with watercolour pencils - it was really an easy image to colour and it's the first time I've attempted a flower, so quite pleased with myself!
The ribbon is from my stash and the red chunky button is Woodware (I never knew they made buttons, but they do, or at least brand them!)
Great challenge and I'm looking forward to next weeks!
By the time you read this (I've set it to publish at a specific time) I shall be hopefully sufficiently organised for a joint Birthday party for both boys this afternoon. I'm expecting around 35 kids and have hired a sports hall. Personally, I'm looking forward to the egg and spoon race that I have organised.... heheheheh!
