Hope

This is my entry for the latest challenge at the Play Date Cafe the theme being red and black. My card has a very graphic style inspired by the photo with the chosen colours and I decided that as it is the time of year when we remember all those brave soldiers' sacrifices for us, the theme will be the hope that they have given us for the future.


Ingredients Used:
Stamps:
Innovative Stamp Creations Friendship Plate
Papermania Build A Poppy Clear Set
Crafty Individuals CI-258
Impression Obsession Word Frames WP118
Red, black and white card
Palette inks: Noir and L'Amour Red
This deceptively simple to make card just involves layering stamped papers and building up the 3D poppy from the set.
