Crafty Boots - Remembrance

Hello, welcome back to another challenge from Crafty Boots - it was my own choice of theme for this fortnight, and coming a day after Remembrance Sunday, and on Armistice Day itself, I couldn't have anything else.... you can make whatever you choose, but it must be in Remembrance of something or someone.

I decided on a card, and a Stamp in the Hand poppies stamp, which I coloured with Festive Berries and Mowed Lawn distress inks, and Black Soot for the centres.


I typed part a line of the poem The Fallen that is always read at Remembrance services on a piece of thin card and 3d mounted it to the card, adding my poppy too.

Beautifully done. That poem is always so moving and it works so well with this composition. A thoughtful and beautiful reminder of the sacrifice so many have made for us. Julie Ann xx

This is lovely Helen! I really like the poppies in that gorgeous red. The crispness of the red and bright green make for a very striking card.

Hugs
