Flaming poppies!

Hello and happy weekend. I like to play along with Aurora Wings Challenges whenever I can, mainly because I love to colour Mitzi's fantastic images. This time the theme is 'the Elements' and I chose to use the colours of fire'. To make the background I coloured a piece of white cardstock with distress inks in shades of yellow through to red and stenciled some swirls and 'flames' onto it. I added a die cut trellis to the left hand corner, and a strip of embossed vellum mounted onto black card across the centre. The gorgeous AW image is coloured with copics, background of this is again coloured with distress inks in the same shades of yellow orange and red and stenciled with swirls. I added black die cut poppies and a large flourish, more die cut poppies in yellow, orange and red and a vellum swirl (hopefully to look like smoke!).
Thanks for visiting, have a fabulous weekend.
