The Sisterhood - Remembrance

Hi agin folks.

Third post today, scroll down for 1 and 2.

Today sees the new theme at The Sisterhood of Crafters, and our lovely Boni has set our theme as 'Remembrance'. Any kind of remembrance, whether you want to remember a family member, or an occasion, it's entirely up to you!

I chose to make a card for Armistice Day, yes I know that's yonks away, but at least I have one now!. It took me longer than I thought to get my image ready for this theme, and I only finished the card yesterday lunchtime!! So here it is:

I have used my new Poppies image here, available at Delicious Doodles. I have coloured it in and scanned it so I can print it out a few times onto glossy photo paper for extra depth of colour. I have cut out layeres and raised them with foam pads. My backing paper is from Funky Fairies (no longer trading) which I have inked round the edges in black. The ribbon and bow are made from pieces out of my bits box. I have mounted all onto plain black cardstock.

So that's it, short and sweet today, gotta fetch kiddies from school in a mo. Pop over to The Sisterhood and see what my lovely Sistah's have created for our remembrance theme, go on, have a go!

WOWEE! Those flowers look like PHOTOS, Teri! Amazing job. I'm always terrified of having to color all of those layers...for some reason it's never occurred to me to scan and print more copies of the one. LOL! Brains and talent - you're a heck of a combination =)

Hi Teri! What a wonderful card for Armistice! The poppies are STUNNING and you coloured them by hand... how artistic! Love the deep reds and the backing paper is just perfect! You asked about my printed papers etc... I use an Epson printer which always prints lovely... no special trick really lol!
