Kind Poppies


This week at still addINKtive we have a sketch and colour combo for you.

You may choose to do either colour, sketch or both!


Bronwyn designed a very pretty circular sketch which I have been inspired by but I have made mine a square card instead.




I haven’t used my copics for quite a while now and I was really having withdrawals!  So I thought I would use copics similar to the stampin up colours in the challenge and colour the poppies.  I love this stamp, it is so beautiful and lots of fun to colour. 

I also stamped the Kindness Matters butterfly onto vellum, coloured it from behind with a marker and cut it out.


Stamps : Pleasant Poppies, Kindness Matters

Card : sahara sand, black, x-press it, vellum card

Ink : white, sahara sand, pip marker, copics

Other : pip satin ribbon (ret.), linen thread, vintage faceted button, white pen, big shot, fancy fan ef


Please take a look at what the rest of the design team have created this week and we’d love it if you would play along with our challenge too.



  1. Gorgeous, Kathy! I love your coloring; you haven't lost your touch. :)

  2. Very pretty Kathy and beautiful colouring. Your poppies look 3D. Hope you are well. xxx

  3. This is totally my kind of card! It is so soft and pretty and I love that you didn't feel the need to add a sentiment.

  4. Nice watercoloring Kathy! It snowed over 18" for our first day of Spring here so your little spring scenery put a smile on my face!

  5. This is beautiful. I love how you can colour with Copics - I still haven't mastered the art. You also reminded me about using vellum in projects - such a cute butterfly. Just love the embossed background and addition of the button for added texture. This is a real work of art.

  6. Lovely card Kathy, I like you softly coloured poppies offset by the black scalloped circle, the clear button and the embossed background. Very pretty!

  7. Beautiful card, Kathy! Your colouring is gorgeous! :)


I love comments!
