Clean and Simple........

                   Thinking of You........
Update...Thrilled and delighted to  have been given an Honourable Mention 
at The Male Room for this card...Thank you so much xx
The weather today is really miserable, so I have had a day of crafting.
This is my card....
I started with stamping the Poppy onto CS and heat set with clear EP.
I stamped again on a piece of scrap paper to use as a mask.
I also masked off a strip vertically over the Poppy mask.
Black embossing paste was used through a brick stencil.
I used red mica paints to colour the poppies. 
It has such a pretty shine to it.
Once dried I used a black and white pen to hi-light the poppies and stamped the sentiment.

I used the Poppy for what it represents and not as a flower as such, so thought it really perfect for a male card for the challenge this fortnight.

This time of year is the time we all Remember and not for one particular memory but remembering the horrors of war. My card represents that with the use of the Poppies as a symbol.

Artplorations-Stencil Blog Hop
Link up projects where you used stencils (any brand).
It can be any type of project, even non-card ones.

I have added another photo of my card, as I decided to pop another layer on it,
as it was starting to go wobbly from the embossing paste and stencilling.
