Painted Poppies

Hello
Did you have a good weekend?
My husband loved the Father's Day card I gave him from Mikey and I ... He didn't hear from any of his own children but at least he knows that we appreciate him

Well, we are in the third week of June and there are 2 more birthdays on my calendar before the month is up ... Here's a card ready to go in the post today... Once again I am using the Painted Poppy Stamp by Altenew - I love this stamp


I ran my CS through the printer to get the colour (cashmere mist by Pink Petticoat) and stamped my poppies in back ink - I knew I wanted to paint them but wasn't sure how they would turn out on pre printed card - as soon as it gets wet it changes colour


I was pleasantly surprised ... I used distress stains and I really like the watercolour effect


The little jar and the sentiment are by Clearly Besotted and the butterfly is a Memory Box die
I see that Memory Box are starting a Monthly Challenge! So I'll be entering this card there seeing as the current challenge is Butterflies



I'm still in quite a bit of pain with my ear problem and sleeping is difficult but hopefully by the end of the week I'll be feeling much better ... 

I'll be back tomorrow for the CCCB post ...

Have a great day
