Chocolate Baroque: Remember The Poppy

Hello and welcome to November. Let's start the month by remembering our fallen heroes - the brave men and women to fought and died to secure our freedom. Remembrance Day / Poppy Day / Armistice Day is observed to honour members of the armed forces who died in the First World War and to mark when hostilities formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Here is a card I made using stamps from the Pretty Poppies A5 sheet. I'm keeping it simple (which was quite a challenge for me!) so that the focus will be on the poppies.

I stamped the poppies with VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto Canson water colour paper and coloured it with Winsor & Newton water colours. And for an extra special touch, I adhered a few tiny red bling. The sentiment is also from the Pretty Poppies sheet, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black.
