More poppy inspiration

Our mid month inspiration post for September sees Sally marooned on our desert island and if I know Sally there will be another item tucked in her stash which she has not mentioned below, some poppy seeds to go along with the trees that will hopefully already be on the island to provide her inspiration.

We have seen some fabulous entries so far this month but there is still plenty of time to join in or enter a second or third piece of artwork and of course be in with a chance of winning those lovely goodies from this months sponsor Stamps by Chloe.

Using Chloe's Stamp 'Poppy' DEC003
I think I transported your poppies to somewhere a little more hilly, Brenda!

1) Colouring medium - (we are allowed 5 colours). Memento inks in Teal Zeal, Dandelion, Grape Jelly, Lilac Posies and Tuxedo Black. I could stamp with them, paint with them and dust them together to make other colours.

2) Set of ink dusters - Mine are always on my Craft table and are used with nearly every card I make. As they are double ended a set of 3 gives me six brushes to play with

3) Craft knife - Like Lynne last month I couldn't be without mine either! I use mine every time I craft. It would have to have a good supply of blades though.

4) Glass cutting mat - A nice smooth surface for working those inks on, cutting on, and signalling to passing ships with the shiny side!

5) Water brush – So I could try my hand at watercolour painting with the inks.

6) Set of stamps - This is the hardest bit! Trees… flowers… grasses? Oh dear!  Which to choose? I think it would have to be trees, and probably the Inkylicious set ‘Flight of Dreams’ or ‘Simply Trees’.

Along with the above we are allowed 50 sheets of card. I would have 20 smooth, 20 silk art card and 10 linen effect card, all in white. Then I could dust away to my heart’s content, attempting to recreate each and every sunset!

Happy dusting Sally and thank you for sharing.
