Eye Popping Poppies

As soon as I saw this photo on the left  at Lily Pad, I knew I had to pull out a very old favorite stamp that I have not used in a long while. And I have never colored this image with Copics so I gave that a try.  I was very pleased with how beautiful the colors are and I  think it turned out very well. The stamp that I used is PSX "Poppies Botanical".  Remember all those beautiful botanical stamps from PSX? I have several in my collection.The photo is from April’s Virginia’s View Challenge with a prize of your choice of a FlexMarker set from Letraset.  We are to make a new card using the photo on the left as a source of inspiration.
