Poppy Patch

Good morning! Hope you all had a nice weekend. It pretty much rained the whole time here. But rainy days are good for stamping razz. I just LOVE this set Poppy Patch from Flourishes. I think I may have went a little overboard on poppies , lol. This one took a lot of pop dots wink. The poppy in the middle has two layers of pop dots under it.

So as I was making this card, I was really wanting some polka dot paper with Real Red/white, but I didn't have any. So...I dry embossed the dots with the swiss dots Cuttlebug folder on white cardstock and brayered over it with Real Red ink! I can't believe it worked! You do have to barely touch the paper with the brayer though. It took me a couple of tries to get one with out red where I didn't want it.

Oh, and for you Copic fans out there, you absolutely HAVE to check out THIS incredible giveaway of 72 Ciaos!
