Peaceful Poppies for CAS(E) This Sketch 357

The summer heat is really biting now so I've been spending time in my craft room, which is now more like a craft sauna, and the swimming pool. I managed a little more experimentation with Peaceful Poppies before being driven out to seek refuge in the cool. For inspiration, I started with the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I've done a number of bright and bold creations using these Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments sets, collectively - Peaceful Poppies. I wondered how they'd go in a very pastel incarnation, which lead me here....

The poppies and leaves are all cut from Whisper White cardstock, lightly sponged in places with Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam.

I think that the set works as well in subtle colours just as well as with regals and brights. What do you think?

  1. Beautiful card. I agree, it looks so pretty in soft pastels. TFS

  2. This totally rings the changes with this set Jan - I love the softness of those florals and the sectioned background.
