Its a Poppies Challenge this fortnight over at The Stampman hosted by Janet. If you haven't heard Janet is collecting poppy themed cards and items to sell at the Royal British Legion at their fundraising concert later on in the year.
I thought I'd do a little tutorial along with it on using reds. I've used the gorgeous Poppy stamp from Aspects of Design 01 Floral. I also used coredinations black magic card stock.
Reds are one of the scariest colours to use in promarkers it seems but actually they're really easy. As there is such a high level of colour in them, the blender pen really works magic when using reds, moreso than any of the other colour ranges.
For this you will need red plus one of the darker shades of red like poppy, your blender pen and one of the greys 4 (I used cool grey 4)
