Blue Poppy

 The Less is More Challenges is : Shades of blue.

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: Summer blues.

I like the Blue poppy Lorraine made, and I have a similar stamp, so I thought I would try it with my own twist.

For my card I used the Concord & 9th set You are enough. I stamped the outline with MFT Extreme black ink and the Blues with Distress inks ( Mermaid Lagoon and Prize Ribbon) Spritzed with water.

Heat set in between layers.

the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted (Tiny type) and I cut it out with the MFT  Little Notes sentiment strips, mounted it with foamtape.
