Red Poppies

I love Poppies, my Mom has a beautiful rock garden in MD, that is loaded with all kinds of flowers. She has quite a few different color Poppies and I adore them. She has an incredible green thumb, growing up she tried to get me interested in learning about types of flowers and gardening but I would have none of it. Fast forward a few years, and guess who married a landscaper? Me! LOL. It drives her crazy, now I love my gardens, granted I have a litte , um lot of help from my hubby, but I really enjoy it. I especially love my herb garden, since I love to cook, fresh herbs make the food taste so much better.

I stamped the Poppy image with Memento black ink, then stamped the french script two times in Memento chocolate ink. I colored the image with Copics R24, R27 & R29, the yellow is Y02 and Y04. Then I sprayed the image with Glimmer Mist in Wheatfield. It did make it a little too shiny, so it's a bit difficult to see the different color grades, but still a neat effect. Hope you have a great Friday, thanks for visiting!


  1. Beautiful poppies! I think this is my favorite of the colors that you have used!

  2. ... I have three pots on the window sill. Two are empty. Parsley remains. I'll get it right someday. Im jealous though because Josh hasn't watered his plants in over a month and they aren't dead.
