Poppies

This worked out well except this was version two, the first ended in the bin. I was inspired by this card found on Pinterest, also I lot of people were using flowers over script so this was my version.
I think the French script could be on my best buy list cos I used it quite a bit now. The Poppies are a Hero Art stamp that was stamped with Versamark and then I used white embossing powder. Now I know that kraft card and copics are not very friendly together so now sure why I thought I could use them and it promptly went in the bin but this version I used my Polychromos pencils worked a treat as you can see.
I was tempted to put a bit or red ribbon on, but I'm not sure you can for Less is More challenge also wasn't sure it was needed.

Great card and now off to google what polychromo pencils are. I love kraft but get frustrated at colouring it.
Perhaps your pencils will solve my problem.

This WOYWW will keep me broke...So far on my list I have promarkers, Tim Holtz distress ink, Tim Holtz markers, sprays and mists and now these pencils. Oh well, I will add them bit by bit over the year.

the red of the pencils really pops against the kraft Debby. Lovely one-layered card.

Super lovely those poppies over the french script! I had the stamp in my hands last week, but decided to buy another Hero arts stamp, but this one is surely on my wish list!
