The Poppy….as we remember
My metal embossed poppy card would make a nice picture for the wall....this card is a really BIG... 8" square!
I've used my stamp JGS160 which came out in 2012.
I stamped the poppy on a piece of red sheet metal with a black 'Surfacez' ink pad.
Using the MercArt embossing tool trace the outline of the poppy from the front following the stamped outline then turn it over and use the larger embossing tools to shape and push the metal to create rounded petals. You will need to fill the back with MercArt embossed metal backing paste. Once dry this will keep the shape rounded.
Create patterns with the tools around the poppy head.
