Crochet Poppy Pattern

Hello

I apologise for my absence over the last couple of weeks but I have experienced many problems regarding broadband … in that I didn’t have any, however, I am back and will play catch up over the coming days.

I have obviously missed Remembrance Day and I always donate to the Poppy Appeal and collect the metal badges every year.  However, this year I also decided to crochet a poppy to wear in the hope that it would be longer lasting than the paper alternative.

This is what I ended up with.

Hello

I have a quick share today using a lovely Poppy stamp from Hobby Art.

I started with a piece of card cut to bookmark size and covered with acrylic paints in shades of  pink and yellow.

I stamped the Open Poppy stamp in black and coloured with pencils. I then used some clear texture paste through a stencil for some added texture.

I hope you like it.

Another crochet border!

Today’s card features the very beautiful butterfly and poppy stamp from Chocolate Baroque together with another of my crochet borders.

I stamped the image onto card which I had previously painted with acrylic paints and coloured the image using pencils, also giving a white highlight to the image.  The butterfly itself I further stamped onto co-ordinating card and coloured similarly and attached giving dimension and a beaded body with a wire antennae.

I added some co-ordinating matts which I stamped or embossed for added interest and of course I added the crochet border.
