Poppy Paperie challenge no.1

Lisa (of PTI Design Team fame) has begun a new challenge on her blog, Poppy Paperie. Well I'm up for a new challenge, aren't you? *grin*

You must use crystals, a flower stamp of some sort, and a bit of pale yellow for this round. "Well", thought I, "that shouldn't be too difficult..." And it wasn't!
I grabbed some Enchanted Evening, some Lemon Tart, and then threw in some Spring Rain and a touch of Scarlet Jewel for contrast.
The flowers on the BG are actually stamped with white pigment ink, but I love how they look like Spring Rain when they dry, don't you? I used white ep for the centers though to make them pop out a bit.
I used my Copics to color some clear rhinestones Scarlet, and then inked the edges of my cut-out flower with Scarlet Jewel too.

Thanks for stopping by this evening!
Hope you are having a relaxing, productive weekend! (that's a bit of an oxymoron isn't it?!)
