Bloom where you are planted!

Hello there folks, Hope all is good with you today. I have a card for the CASology challenge where the cue is Bloom!
(The title of this post I saw somewhere on a stamp I think, it tickled my imagination LOL)
and here is my card

Yes it's another using my lovely new mask from Imagination Crafts, I just love poppies and this mask has so many to choose from
I also used Casual Friday's stamps, 'Only You'
I hope you like it :D
Check out the CASology challenge blog if you have a moment, loads of inspiration there!!!

What a simple but beautifully elegant card. I say simple but definitely not simple to pull off Gay. As always you have the composition perfected and your colouring of the flowers is stunning.

PS Sorry I've not dropped by recently. I've not had time for a proper hop through my blog roll for ages and have obviously missed some beauties. Thanks for dropping in to see me and leaving your lovely comment too. Xx

Indeed, I DO LIKE! Your poppies have such wonderful shading. Did you use sprays, inks or chalks to create these beautiful flowers. I loved the red & green against the simple white background. Made a striking & elegant card. TFS & thanks for taking time to visit my blog! I sure understand when folks get behind in visits, and appreciate all the more, their taking time to leave a sweet comment. Hugs

MaryH said...

Oops, just read a previous post, and saw that you do this with copics! Wonderful. I may try this. Have airbrushed with masks, but never tried directly with the markers. THX for the idea.
