Today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers took us to the website of A Cool Breeze, specializing in handmade fans. I chose this fan to inspire my card, and the background brought to mind kraft cardstock which I used for my card base. I masked the poppies image, which is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Poppies and Greetings, before sponging with Distress ink which is similar in shade to kraft.
I colored the flowers with copics and used a white gel pen for highlighting the flower centers.
The embossing folder was also inked on one side with the same color of Distress ink.
This bow was sitting on my crafting table, a reject from another project, but it looks at home on this card, I think!
