Morning Folks. Just popping on to tell you about the new challenge over at Delicious Doodles which is REMEMBRANCE. If you read my post you will see how I have chosen to interpret the theme, but you can interpret it in anyway you like. For example, you may wish to make a sympathy card, or a birthday card with I remembered on it.
Today is of course Remembrance Day where we remember those who have given their lives or have been seriously wounded in return for our freedom. Each year the nation expresses its unequivocal support for The Royal British Legion's charity work through the Poppy Appeal by buying paper poppies (details of their work and how you can help can be found here). In our modern day lives it is all too easy to forget the importance of this day, so I decided that I'd make a card in honour of those who have fallen.
The image was coloured with Promarkers and Prisma Pencils, I added some Stickles to her dress and some Black Enamel Accents to the centre of the poppies. I created the backing paper using Distress Inks, spritzed with Glimmer Mist, stamped some swirls and then heat embossed them, finally I sponged some ink through some sequin waste. The poppies have been made from satin fabric and I've added Stickles to the centres.
