POPPIES

I made this card for Judy's scramble on the Hero Arts discussion group.  The theme was to use pastels and a touch of black.  It will also be entered in CAS-ual Friday's tic-tac-toe challenge and I chose chevrons, black and sequins.  I used Jennifer Rzaza idea for the poppies although instead of white embossing the poppies and then watercoloring, I used a piece of paper I had previously watercolored and white embossed the poppies on that and then cut them out.  The little bit of green was added with a distress marker.  The chevron patterned paper was a scrap and the sequins are very, very, very old - from my Mom when she used to make those sequined Christmas ornaments in the 60's!
Again, a sentiment will be added when needed.

Supplies:
HA CL449 and HA white embossing powder

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty
