I LOVE Poppy Parade. I almost cried this year when it left the colour circuit. Oh well. I'm still hanging on to my supplies in case they ever bring it back (which I'm desperately hoping they will do). Anywho, the challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is black and Poppy Parade, with a side of punches, if you please.
I must say that I haven't really used the Blossom Builder punch a whole lot. I've had it forever, but it just isn't one of my go-to punches. However, I've been seeing a bunch of theses decadent flowers lately so I pulled it out today to give it a shot. It was a little time consuming, but well worth the effort. I think I might bring a stack of paper in next time I'm watching a movie and make a few more.
The lovely flourish in the background is from Everything Eleanor. I'm a lover of everything flourish (I even have a tattoo of a butterfly, the wing pattern of which is a bunch of flourishes). They are simple yet elegant, and match many different styles of images. Rather than just stamping the background like this, which would have been lovely too, I decided to use the delft tile technique. Just adds another little extra.
Well, back to homework for the day. Reading about Freud's psychoanalytic theory gets a little dry after five hours of it....
