Poppy Birthday Wishes

I got a chance to ink up my new Remember set from Papertrey Ink. WOW - Lisa included soooooo many wonderful parts in this set! It's quickly going to become one of my favs! I used Taylor's Cupcake Challenge 45 for the layout. Such a great sketch - I urge y'all to try it!! I can't wait to check out what everyone came up with. I started by cutting and embossing my ovals with Nestabilities. I then inked up my poppy parts with Palette Noir and stamped them out. The big poppy is cut out, raised and layered with a smaller poppy. Did that make sense :) I colored my images in with a Niji waterbrush and re-inkers. I just kept going over and over the red color to make it darker in parts. Then used a white gel pen to add a little highlight to the center flower. I'm so loving this color combo too - it would be perfect for Christmas cards!! FYI: My flowers don't look that faded in real life and I didn't realize how many times I colored outside of the lines until I zoomed in for the pic. Eek! Please ignore that :) Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!! Stay warm too - it's actually chilly willy here, which I love. Finally feels like Christmas!!
