P is for Poppies

This is the second of my tags for this month and predictably it is poppies - well there was a new stamp plate with them on from Chocolate Baroque which was irresistible!!  This one reminded me of the explosion of poppies which arrived uninvited all over my garden (including paths and the gravelled area as well) and they are various shades of pink and red.  Stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with Coloursoft pencils, the seed head in the background is also a CB stamp which I've had for many years.  Quite a simple tag but then it is nice to have some less elaborate ones amongst the collection which is growing as the year progresses.


  1. Beautiful tag Val and love how you have used the poppy seed heads for the background....I can see why you wanted these stamps they are lovely


  2. This is gorgeous Val, I love the softness of the colours on this. I've only just cut my stamps out, just need to get them to the ink pad now.

    ps by the way the SU label punch that you commented on is the normal one but I just put the punched label back in and shortened it!
