This week’s Finishing Up Friday is all about remembrance.
I had some pre-cut leaves from the Poppy Moments Dies in my stash, so I set about recreating this previous project. It seemed perfect for the time of year.
My colours are obviously Poppy Parade, along with Garden Green, Basic Black and Basic White.
The background ‘splats’ are from the coordinating Painted Poppies Stamp Set.
Lengths of Basic Black Baker’s Twine are wrapped across the project.
Rather than cut the inners and outers of the flowers and leaves in different shades of red and green, I used just the one shade of each. I then darkened the top layer with the corresponding Ink Pad and a Sponge Dauber, before sticking the layers together.
The leaves and bud are then stuck down onto the background. Using Dimensionals, the two flowers are then attached.
As I wanted this project to be sentiment free, a bunny ears bow is added to the Baker’s Twine for a finishing touch.
