Technique Junkies Memorial Poppy

Happy Memorial Day friends.  Having a father who served in the Navy for 20 years and a son who just completed his service to the Marines, this day always brings me to thoughts of those who gave their lives for our freedom.

The Memorial Day Poppy was originated by Moina Michael in 1915, as inspired by the poem, “Flanders Fields”.  She developed her own poem that went as such:

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

For my contribution today I made a card featuring Poppy “SD293” by Technique Junkies.  I began using the Scene Silhouette technique on the Simple & Easy Inking Technique CD found at the Technique Junkies store. The background is created using Pan Pastels and washi tape.  After stamping the poppy on the Scene Silhouette background in archival ink, I colored in with Liquitex Ink in Naphthol Crimson. The sentiment is from my favorite of Technique Junkies called, “Things I want to do”.
