Magnificent Pink Poppies by Heather Telford

Hi Friends,

Heather Telford is our guest today and she brought with her a magnificent Pink Poppies card. The colors and the softness she achieves is nothing short of gorgeous!

She is using the Spontaneous Joy stamp by Penny Black and she makes it simply glorious by using distress stains and her own special brand of magic! (Check out more of that magic on her blog!)

Oh, and just a note about the distress stains. Many of you know, the distress stains with the dauber top have been discontinued. In its place is the distress spray stain with a spray/mister top – it is the same formula. We bought up all the remaining stock of the dauber topwe could so most colors are still in stock so grab them while you can. As a color depletes, we will restock it in the spray version.

Finally, a bit of fun! Heather and The Foiled Fox are sponsoring a giveaway – YAY! Be sure to check out at the end of the blog how you can enter to win.
