Beate's Be Inspired Challenge #20

I haven't done a challenge from Beate forever.. I am so glad she is back in the game... I missed reading her blog.. She is so amazing.. Jump over to her blog and check out all the amazing artwork she is creating..  Beate's Blog 

I haven't use this stamp set for ever it seams.. It will always be forever one of my favorites. It was retired so It is sadly no longer available from Stampin'Up.
I created the pattern paper by using tape to create the dark lines with a Stampin' Sponge pounced in a Close to Cocoa.. classic stamp pad. I used a black stampin' write marker to make the pattern on the Pumpkin pie card stock.. Too customize your own dew drops I sanded the back of clear drops and colored with a sharpie brand marker and adheared with mini glue dots. I water colored the poppy with classic stamp pads.. I used my Aqua painter to layer the different shades starting with the lightest first. I used a Close to Cocoa marker to draw in more designs around the image.

stamp recipe:
Stamp Set- 
Cardstock- Basic Black, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red.
Ink- Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Close to Cocoa.
Marker- Close to Cocoa, Basic Black.
Ribbon- Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up)
Adhesive Mini Glue dots, Snail and ATG gun.
Dew drops and Sharpie permeant marker
Movie finally finished-  "Sense and Sensibility"
