Thinking of you

Both the Monday and Wednesday Challenge from Simon Says Stamp is thinking of you and to use Penny Black.

 Thought about it long and hard. And it still didn't come out as it was in my head ;-)
I have this clingstamp from Penny Black (fresh) and as it's almost remembrance day I thought it would fit.

I used a sentiment from Stampendous (encouraging words) to reinforce the theme.

As this card is maybe more for the loss of a loved one I didn't want to paint it all happy and vibrantly. I would have prefered a single poppy, but that one wasn;t Penny Black and I always try to adhere to the challenge requirements if I can.

So I thought I would color one poppy in red  for the remembrance bit and also if it is to go for a deceased person I also wouldn't want it all nicely colored but more subdued.

Does it all make sense?
I used #318 of Talens Ecoline on Schut watercolor paper.
I stamped everything with My Favorite Things Hybrid black ink and the MISTI as I need to stamp more than once, or twice, or trice even ;-)

I've put some drops of Glossy accents on the colored flower.

Have you seen the new style blog?
New Challenge badges too, for Monday at least, couldn;t find one for Wednesday, maybe still being made ....
