Friendship Poppy - The Twinery

Hi there. I'm here today with a beautiful and simple friendship card. On November 11th we celebrate Remembrance Day in Canada, so in honour of that day, I used a poppy stamp.


As a Canadian I will always think of a poppy as symbolic of Nov. 11 (Flanders Field etc...) but it is such a beautiful flower on it's own. I added a pale wash of watercolours in the background, and coloured the poppies with Copics using the "no-line" technique. I think it really made the flowers stand out. The black twine was an accent along with the black sentiment and black dots. It "tied" them all together. *wink*
