***Simplify***

I am just loving the vibrant colors in Swirlydoos Retro Tapestry Kit this month. The blues and the yellows are beautiful. The pop of orange is a nice surprise. With my LO "Simplify",
I decided to make all of the flowers from the card stock add on. I used Oriental Poppy glimmer mist to enhance the orange and Viva Pink to color the cream card stock. The photomat was from a *g*c*d* Melody Ross paper pack that came in the embellishments kit. They were the perfect size to mat 4 x 6 photo's. The title was cut with my Cricut Expression and the Home Decor cartridge. I did some tearing and then stitching with embroidery floss. The photo was taken in the woods behind my home. The lighting from the shade of the trees, deep in the woods, was perfect. But it started to rain, and my photo session was cut short. Till next time...

I clustered the flowers with the Heartfelt Creations leaf stamp I so love doing. A little glimmer mist and the leaves come to life.
I used a single punched bloom to make the buds and then just tucked a McGill Starburst punched from card stock in the middle.
Just some more closeups of the card stock flowers. They almost look like poppies. Well that just gave me an idea to go create a tutorial to make poppies. RED POPPIES....ooooohhhhh... I'll be back!!
