Our Yahoo Group has two voluntary swaps each month.  I try to participate as often as I can.  The "Color Swap" this month was to make a red an white card.  I did add just the touch of green for the stems and a black sentiment so hope the recipient doesn't mind.    The stamp is from SU.  When you purchase the stamp, it is actually one large stamp but there is a space where I was able to cut it into two pieces.  Now I can use the two pieces separately or together as one design.
I colored the Poppies with Copic markers.  I had a white butterfly in my card parts so I colored it as well with the marker to match the Poppy blooms.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink because I feel it leaves a crisper image............but Memento Tuxedo Black was used to stamp the flowers so they could be colored with Copic markers.
Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty - love the poppies. I agree with you about the ink - nothing beats the Versafine black!

Beautifully done Vicki! I have this set and have yet to use it. Thanks for the tip about cutting it apart!
