5 days/5 looks/5 cards- Card 5

Hello my friends, my goodness, this card showcase is almost over. It went so quickly, but I hope you have enjoyed it and all the different looks I got with the same pretty Hero Arts Poppy stamp. This stamp is a set, there is a smaller poppy stem but I just think this one is so much prettier!

For my grand finale, I have an over the top stamped card! I again, used cream cardstock, and stamped several times at different heights, lightly overlapping the poppies. I took that block and spritzed it with cranberry zing spray mist and allowed some of the droplets be larger. Once dry I colored my stems with a water color pencil.


I  layered my blog on a bit of lime green and pink papers - both scraps of GCD studios paper, using my mini scallop scissors on the green paper. 
I looped a bit of my Watermelon crinkled ribbon ( for sale in my etsy store- link in the right sidebar) and made a nice large double bow with button and twine topper. I layered on all the flowers using my UCutIt foam tape from Glue Arts.These flowers are again colored with watercolor pencils, I use a waterbrush to blend out the color. When they were dry I finished the centers by adding glitter glue. 
I left the sentiment off this card, it was perfect without one.


  Boy, I cannot believe we are done, I hope this card was another bit of inspiration to you in this 5 day card showcase, and let me know if you enjoyed this, I would be willing to try this again!
have a wonderful day!

Nice job. Thanks for the inspiration. I do the same thing as far as making more than one card with same design in different ways.
