Red Poppies

Hope you had a good weekend!  Here is a card I made with Stately Flowers 1 when I was testing out some Spectrum Noir markers last month.  (I didn't want to post it until the stamps were back in stock.)  Isn't this poppy image gorgeous with these Gina K Journey of the Heart patterned papers?  Base is Pure Luxury Red Hot and I used some red grosgrain from a past StampTV kit.  To create this glowing effect, follow the exact same coloring process that I did with the blue markers in this video but use these for the petals: DR2 and DR3.  For Copics, use R35 and R27.  
Spellbinders die is from Timeless Rectangles.

Thanks for visiting!  
New video with Fabulous Frame posting tomorrow! :)
