Frugal Poppys

If you've read the last post you'll know I went all tight fisted and used the "ink" I'd picked up from stamping into wet brushos on some scrap white card.

The ink that clung to the clean stamp from this image.

 Became this image.

I was also tight fisted and used the black archival left on the stamp after stamping the stem on the last card.  Not bad eh, 2 cards from the same lot of ink and if I'm totally honest most of the orangey card was what I'd gutted from the previous card as well. 

Definitely another way of stamping that needs a minimalist look but seeing as I'd stamped on a strip of card I'd left from cutting a4 into 5" squares there wasnt much to do other than use a layout.  This one is from sketch & stash blog.  Apart from the stamped image there's not much to the card, some ribbon & buttons I've had lying around for yonks and a sentiment from an old docraft set.
