MTSC68 Red Poppies

Today I got to make this super quick card for this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge - MTSC68!

I started with a base of black bazzill and layered with white and three pieces of retired SU Ginger Blossom DSP.  For the main panel I stamped the poppies from JustRite's Plant a Little Love set in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R22, R27, R29, YG11, YG63, YG67).  There is more shading IRL - I don't know why it isn't showing up here!  :(  I cut it out with Small Circle Nestabilities and mounted on Scalloped Oval Nestabilities (red bazzill) and Label 7 (black bazzill).  I finished by added some Black Kaisercraft Pearls to the bottom corner and a large black satin bow.  I very nearly left off the bow, but it just looked so naked!!  :)

Stamps - Plant a Little Love (JustRite)
Paper - Black and Red Bazzill, White, X-press It Blending Card, Ginger Blossom DSP (SU)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Small Circle, Large Scallop Oval, Label 7 Nestabilities, Copics, Black Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Black Pearls.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
