Poppies ...... as we Remember with Woodware

I've had a fabulous day catching up with some 'crafty' things and starting my samples for Hobby Art.
One of the things that I needed to finish was a card for the Woodware challenge.
As usual it is the last day of the challenge before I manage to get something posted lol.
This week the challenge has been set by one of their retail shops LLinda's Craft Shop and she has chosen
The Poppy .......... as We Remember
Once again I have managed to find some bits in my box that I could make use of, and funnily enough the main panel actually uses the same Dreamwaver Tall Poppy Stencil that Linda used in her fabulous creation.
How different my card looks though. I have used my stencil, some Red Metallic sheet and my Cuttlebug machine.
I have used my Dreamweaver Stencils so much more now that I know that I can use them with my Embossing Machine. Do make sure that you get the right sandwich though so that you don't bend the stencil.
The plates on my machine are rather well worn, but this has added a rather nice distressed look to the finished piece. I used some permanent black pen on the center of the Poppy.
I added some Alcohol Ink to tone down the red of the metal.
I found two pieces of metal in my box with the Poppies already embossed on them, so I decided to finish a second card. The background is from my large stash of papers made using my Creative Palette, bubble wrap and inks.
This piece of metal was silver to start with and once again I added some Alcohol Inks.
I stamped and embossed some Wild Flowers onto the background paper and added a sentiment stamped onto a piece of acetate.
I notice that Dorothy hasn't added a link again this week, but as she is currently in Skipton with Judith and the rest of the Gang getting ready for the Retailer Retreat which starts tomorrow I think that she can be forgiven for the over sight.
Off to get some dinner, and then it is back to the Craft Room where I have a few more samples to make.
Have a good evening.

  1. Oh Kim these are brilliant. Very stylish. When's the stencil class then A few years ago on night duty, I would sit and order hundreds of stencils that I never use anymore.
