Pleasant Poppies

The challenge at Pan Pastels this week is to use the colours Red, White and Blue. For my card I've used the Stampin Up Pleasant Poppies stamp and stamped through one of the Clever Cut aperture masks. I've embossed the black lines with clear powder and coloured with Promarkers. I've use the black Promarker with a fine nib to draw around the template then placed the inside of the template over the poppies and used Permanant Red Pan Pastel around it. These pastels have so much colour I only used what was still on the sponge from a previous project as I only wanted a light effect. I've added some small blue butterflies which were cut with a Stampin Up Embosslit from scaps of paper and some black Stickles for the centres of the open poppies. I'm also entering this into the Addicted To Stamps challenge which is Make Your Mark
