Originally I would have used this card for my sister in law who has a birthday coming up at the beginning of June and loved poppies. She is a member of another group of people whom I admire, people who know what to do with needle and thread. As well as making clothes she was a great quilter and over the years we have been blessed to receive quite a few of her wonderful creations, from Advent Calendar Wall Hangings when the girls where little to Quillows. Sadly she passed away a few weeks ago after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
I am not sure that I will be an any hurry to get the paint out again but I have been inspired by a number of resent happenings to find a needle and thread and look again at my stash of material bits so watch this space!

The background is done by giving the card a very quick and light wash of blue then splatting it with the same blue with some more pigment in to make the colour deeper.
Don't forget the Path of Positivity Challenge has another two weeks to run so there is still plenty of time to join in. The theme is optional but it would be lovely to hear about the people that you admire and to see your artwork. All the details of how to enter and the link up can be found at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog. If you need a bit more incentive then A Day For Daisies and Scribbles Designs are both sponsoring this challenge and offering prizes for winners.
Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
