Tall Poppy by Laura Drahozal
- Cut the base card stock to 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold on the side.
- Using the clear handle and the Versamark Ink, stamp the wired stamp onto brown card stock. Stamp it several times.
- Pour Aged Copper Enamel over the top of the card stock and pour off the excess.
- Use the heat tool to emboss the enamel.
- Cut the metal to slightly larger than the Poppy Stencil.
- Place the poppy stencil face up on the base of the manual die cut machine.
- Place the metal, green side up on top of the stencil.
- Cover the metal with the rubber embossing mat and the embossing mats for your machine.
- Run the project through your machine, but do not remove the metal from the stencil.
- Use the teflon tool to press the metal around the inner edges of the poppy and leaves.
- Drop a couple of drops of alcohol ink remover into the poppy sections that you would like to color.
- Use the cotton swabs to soak up the excess alcohol ink remover.
- Drop a couple of drops of color in each part of the poppy except for the leaves. Pick up any extra with the cotton swabs.
- Sand the project while the stencil is still attached. This way, you can remove all the color from the background of the poppies.
- Remove the metal from the stencil and place on one side of the couble sided mounting paper (cut to size).
- Assemble the card.
