First of all, I played along with some of my favorite challenge peeps - the talented ladies over at The Play Date Cafe! This week was a color splash, so I splashed with an orange poppy!
And I'm so excited about the second challenge I played, because it's actually my very first time joining them! Ever! I KNOW!! What can I say - it's CAS-ual Fridays, and I'm just not usually a clean & simple kinda gal.
The poppies I used are from one of my all-time favorite clear sets from Hero Arts. So so pretty! I decided to color just one little blossom for my color splash, and pop it up on a tag for CAS-ual Fridays. I wanted to dull the base poppy a bit, so I went over the panel with Picket Fence Distress Stain. The poppy center has a touch of Midnight Black Stickles, and Hero pearls finish it all off.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
