A Basket of Poppies

Hi Peeps,

Today's card is a little different from my normal choice of cute images and is my DT card for the Copic Marker Eurpope Blog.  If you've not been over in a while you really should check out the inspiration.  A diverse team with so many different styles so always something different to see. And... did you know we have a challenge going on.  It's an easy one, "doodling".  Just include some doodling on your creation and there's also a tutorial on this.  You can check it all out HERE.

O.K. onto my card.  I chose my paper first which is by Magnolia and is a vintage red.  When placed next to my copic chart matched perfectly to the "R80" range. My image is  floral display of Poppies from Tiffany Doodles.

I have coloured some of the poppies using R85, R83, R81 and then coloured some using R89, R85, R83.  By just replacing one copic (R81 for R89) creates a darker shade and gives a contrast in the colours as you can see.

For the leaves I have used YG67, YG63, G20.

The basket placed at the bottom of the floral poppies was cut using the 

Marianne D Craftables - Flower Basket (CR1208)

I gave the poppies some dimension by adding foam tape so they stand out from the basket.

I really hope you have enjoyed seeing something different from me today and I appreciate any comments you may leave.
