Poppies With A Difference!

Good afternoon everyone!

I was honoured to be asked by my good friend Ann-Lise to Guest DT for a 3D challenge she is hosting, and just look at the fabulous Aurora Wings image I got to play with! Smiles.

She is called Elf With Poppy Blooms and I loved her on sight.

I chose to work with different colours. I know that you can’t get Teal coloured poppies. But I just had to take artistic license with this one. Smiles.

Because of the 3D theme I wanted to make my colouring as 3D as possible.

And I took great care with my deeper shadows, so that my image could really pop.

Here is a list of the Copics which I used:-

The bow and brown rose ribbon trim, &  gorgeous Teal Flower are from That Craft Place.
