Stampinback Poppies

Hello bloggers!

Phew, it's been so lovely and hot recently and today in Whitstable we have been celebrating the Oyster Festival!  People flocked to our little harbour town to try the oysters and to enjoy the amazing food on offer around the harbour.  What great weather for a festival!

I went into Canterbury with my husband this morning and bless him, he treated me to a large tin of Caran D'ache Neocolor II crayons..... fabulous!!  They are so vibrant and being water-colours too they are very versatile.  I decided to use them to colour these beautiful poppies from Stampinback, my pride and joy! ;)
The background stamps are from Inkylicious.


Here's a picture of the crowds enjoying the water's edge today at the Oyster Festival....


Just look at that beautiful sky!!  Oh I do love summer.....
I'm entering this tag in the Make it Monday challenge.
I hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine too, thank you muchly for visiting my blog, big hugs to you all! :) xxxx

Just stunning Wendy. Love how those beautiful coloured poppies pops against the background. Awesome photo with wonderful scenery. We also have an oyster festival here in South Africa, at the coastal town Knysna. Your photo looks nearly like Knysna.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I enjoy seeing your tag with the red poppies and the great background. Very pretty! An Oyster festival sounds very exciting. We live near Lake Ontario in Canada - no oysters!

Beautiful Wendy, I love the pop of colour from the Poppies. You'll have fun with the NeocolourII crayons, they are fun to play with for backgrounds as well. Have a great day, Shirleyxx

Looks like the oyster festival was busy, and what a beautiful day for it.
This tag is gorgeous. All the stamps used are beautiful and the poppies look lovely with the white highlights in the petals. I really like the detail of the numbering in black ink, little finishing touches like that look great.

Hi Wendy! Thanks for all the lovely comments you've left on my blog. I've had a good look at your work, and you do make some wonderful cards and tags. I especially find inspiration in your tags as I find them really hard to make myself. This one is really classy. I love the vintage feel of it, and it's a great combination of stamps. I'm now following you on blogger and Bloglovin'!
