Clean and Simple Card Making - Day Two

On Day Two of our Clean and Simple class, we learned techniques for masking and reverse masking. I chose to use a stencil of a California poppy. The design was actually created on the Silhouette by my sister Chrissie who shared it with me. I had whined to her about the fact that I could never find a great stamp of the beautiful California poppy, our State flower. She graciously created this for me. I used Distress Inks in Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade for the flower, and Mowed Lawn for the stem. The border around the card is a stamp from the February Simon Says Stamp kit. Love it. The sentiment is from my stash. Thanks for looking.


  1. you executed the coloring on that poppy so well!
    super idea with the stamped border, looks hand-drawn.
