I love the bit of dark border around her image, and I have an old poppy stamp that I haven't used in quite a while. This time I tried something completely different for me with the stamp.  First the stamp is Delicate Blossom by Hero Arts. It has two poppy bunches, and their petals are lined.  I wanted to try this as a no line coloring experiment.  I learned two things for my style.  1) Each section or petal had to be colored separately, or I would lose the line shape of the petal.  2. It wasn't a fluke the first time I colored it, the second one turned out just as nice. YEA!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
