When I saw the amazing symmetry and lines in the stamped images, I knew right away I had found my 'logo', my 'company name' and something to look forward to. One day, I might even sell something I'd made, and this would be me: Poppyprint.
I mean, just look at these gorgeous images! Nature is astounding in her perfection, especially when it comes to the garden. I'm a 'plant it and hope it lives' gardener. These poppies have thrived under my negligence and really taken over. I can only hope my 'at home' creating will be equally prolific with just a little bit more care and nurturing...
The velvety bits are perfectly suited to stamping - they soak up the ink and transfer it back to paper beautifully. The trick is to not let the pods dry out too much, because then the velvet dries up and gets too hard. Every image is slightly different from the next, and all of them are lovely. I'm going to try stamping on fabric with next year's crop!
Thank you Donna D.!
