CrAzY for Cheer

It’s time for another challenge with the Crazies, and this week we’re looking to cheer someone up!  July 11th is actually Cheer Up the Lonely Day, so let’s create cards that provide comfort and encouragement!

I went with a simple thinking of you sentiment for my card…


I colored this poppy from the LJD Delicate Pretty Poppies stamp set from My Favorite Things using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, then die cut and mounted it to a piece of watercolor card stock that I also used my Zig markers on.  I splattered the background with water, some watered-down Perfect Pearls and some Tropical Teal dye ink as well, and embellished with a few sequins.  My poppy and background were colored as part of The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge, and I also used these colors for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Stop by the C4C blog for all the challenge details, and join us!  And visit the other Crazies for more inspiration…

The Poppy popped up at me and said, "Come closer, take a look at my beautiful colors," so I did! "Yes, Poppy, you are a lovely red." grin!
