After my gold embossed poppy card, I wanted to make a more traditional one where the poppies are coloured to red. I wanted to create a background which enhances the beauty of the poppies and I also wanted to make it elegant. So I created this:
And here is my tutorial:
I stamped the image onto a Neenah Solar White paper (110lb) with Versamark ink, then I heat embossed with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. I so loved this stamp, so I decided to keep the whole image, I just didn't want to cut off any part of it. This is why I didn't use any MFT STAX die, I just trimmed off the white areas with a guillotine.
Then I started to colour the images with Copic Sketch markers.
If you can't see in my picture what colours I used, I will tell you then.
For the poppy flowers: R27, R24, R22, R11
For the middle of the poppy flowers: C6, E11, W3
For the stems: YG03, G24
For the fruit: E11, W3
For the background: B29, B26
Actually, the background wasn't that dark (the photo doesn't do it justice), so for more drama, I coloured some areas with Dark Indigo and Black Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.
I also used my colourless Copic marker to remove the unwanted colours from the embossed contours.
After I sprayed my colouring with a fixative and I placed my card onto a red, then a gold panel. In the end, I glued it on a dark blue card base.
Oh, the sentiment! I stamped the text with Versamark onto a paper strip from the same cardstock I used for the card base. I heat embossed with Princess Gold, then cut out with one piece of the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips die set.
What I used:
MFT Poppies background stamp
MFT Essential Sentiments stamp set
MFT, Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips die
Copic Sketch markers
Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder
Tsukineko, Versamark ink
Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils

I have made this card for the MFT 2019 Card Design Superstar challenge. And with this card, I would like to join the Coloring Virtuoso category.
