Another new stamp to play with, gift from a friend for my birthday. I know they are poppies but somehow I just wanted them to be blue so I'm saying they are Himalayan poppies,which are blue(now I'm not sure if that's spelt right?) Background is blue and lilac pans,poppies coloured with water colour pencils. I spent ages looking for a quote but nothing seemed appropriate until I came across this old ,well used and loved Hero stamp which I have had for ever.  I have been so used to using 6" square cards that I am struggling a bit with these 5x7 rectangles but some of my new stamps are really too big for the square cards and as I have a considerable stash of different sizes of card blanks its time I started to use some of them up. Quite a simple card but it's such a lovely stamp I didn't want to detract from it.

Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Sentiments


  1. This is far too pretty! Everything is so very elegant and so very soothing to look at. I love the peacefulness of this card and how it matches the sentiment so beautifully. Thankyou for joining in the fun at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight.
