Dragons Dream TIO #145 Vintage, Flowers and Texture

 Well here we are again with another new challenge over at the Dragons Dream Challenge blog. This time the theme has been chosen by my uber talented team mate Tracy, who would like to see "Vintage, Flowers and Texture" on your tags along with at least one real stamped image.
I love this Poppy Meadow stamp from IndigoBlu and the sentiment is just so true!
I applied grunge paste through the Crafters Workshop mask and then painted over with lilac Fresco paint, working in some dusty concord and black soot around the edges. The sentiment was stamped out on  watercolour card as I love the texture when you ink it up. The flowers were also stamped out on to watercolour card, waterbrushed and then extra layers of petals were added by stamping again on to tissue paper and layering up.

The petals on Poppy's always remind me of tissue as they are so delicate. We would love to see your tags over at Dragons Dream, just click the link on my sidebar for a short cut, and please don't forget to include at least one real stamp.

This is gorgeous Elizabeth. The poppies are beautiful and it's a lovely background. I'm guessing you like the Grunge paste then.
