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.

  1. Come on Meghan, you know you wanna! It’s very versatile and allows for a whole lot of variations; I know you’d be able to work wonders with it! I’m not helping, am I?

    I struggle like you do between wanting and needing yet another stamp.
    Do all card-makers suffer this addiction? I’d say we should start a
    “Stampers Anonymous” group, but do we really want to stop? Have a good
    weekend with Vicki.

  2. Beautiful card Meghan, I always love the cards you create. Just to let you know in case you’re not on twitter….Hero Arts tweeted this card today.
