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.

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty


  1. Love the contrast between the dramatic black and white chevron pattern and the soft flow and colour of the flowers! So glad you joined us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. The watercoloring is perfect. This is beautiful!
