Lest We Forget

I made this card for Remembrance Day also known as Armistice or Poppy Day. In case you did not know Scotland and other commonwealth countries around the world lay poppy wreaths at memorials on November 11th.  We also wear poppy pins as a sign of remembrance for those who died in the line of duty. The symbol of the poppy came from a poem called Flanders Fields.


The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company called Wishing you Joy it is such a pretty flower stamp. I sponged the background with Memento inks I used Bamboo Leaves  for the grass and Danube Blue mixed with White ColorBox pigment ink to make the sky. I coloured the flowers with a Copic Cardmium Red marker I printed the sentiment from my computer.

Thanks for Visiting :)
