In The Garden...

In The Garden is the theme for this Penny Black and More Challenge. Perfect timing for a 'Thank You For Your Hospitality' card, as we just got back from a lovely time at my in-laws home in Oklahoma...waaaay far trip from Madison, Wisconsin.

I used an old favorite of mine, the Penny Black 'Pop Pop Poppies'.  I initially stamped the flowers with Wild Honey Distress Ink followed by Fired Brick.  Once this dried, I stamped the center of the lower poppy with Black Soot Distress Ink and finished by doing the leaves in Peeled Paint and painted the little bit of detail with some more Peeled Paint once it dried.  I should note that I took sized 2 round paint brush and kind of 'dotted' around the black center because I didn't stamp it very nicely.  I splattered red and green inks on the background and stamped the thank you sentiment in black and white embossed the 'for your hospitality' from the Altenew Succulents stamp set.  Thank you for reading!
