Resist Poppies

Must resist Poppy stamp.

Must resist Poppy stamp.

This is the mantra I am repeating to myself, because the store owns the Poppy Background by Hero Arts and I really don’t need to own it. But if I did own it, I could use it at home any time I wanted… but I still don’t need to own it. How much longer can I resist this stamp when the effect is SO beautiful…

I stamped the Dots & Flowers Background on ivory cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink and allowed to dry, then stamped the Poppy Background on top with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder so the background would show through. Then I just went in and added colour to the poppies using more Distress Inks with my Fantastix applicators – ironically this is a Resist Technique… and I think resistance is futile.
