Today I have another creation for you using the Blazing Poppy Collection!
I used Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel on Natural White card stock for the images. I colored them with chalk inks using make-up applicators for the flowers, leaves and butterflies and a blender pen for the filler image in the center. The flowers were shaped using Emma Lou's video technique you can see here.
Here is a little close up of the flowers for you.
Here's a close up of the larger butterfly.
