New challenge - Poppies!

Our challenge for this fortnight is poppies, why poppies you may ask, well pop over to our challenge blog where Janet explains all!!  

I have used Tim's Kraft Resist Pad and the new Fired Brick Distress Stain.  I picked this sheet of paper as it has the words memory and remembrance etc.  A swish over with the distress stain revealed the resist. 

I stamped the Hero Arts Engraved Flower cling stamp onto red card, cut them out and shaped them slightly.

I made the 'remember' framie image for some of the team to use for the cards.  I've inked this and the base card with Distress Ink Tea Die, it looks very pale in the photo but in real life it matches the colour of the relief on the kraft paper.

It'll be great if you can join us for this challenge.

Well, I can't believe it is the weekend again, I hope you have a good one!!!



  1. A beautiful card Jill, and how lovely to have that particular wording on the Kraft Resist. Have a happy weekend - Sylvia x

  3. This looks gorgeous Jill. Love the resist and the fired brick is a stunning colour with it.
    I was about to put my usual 'thankyou for joining in with the Stamp man this week' message and then realised I don't need to hehe.
