Daring Card Makers - Poppies

It seems I am destined only to get around to the DCM dare when it is the flower of the month!   Here is how the challenge reads:

This week it's the first challenge of the month, so that means we'd like you to use the flowers associated with the month of August as the starting point for your cards. August's flowers are
Poppies and Gladioli
You can use either flower, or both of them as the inspiration for your cards and as usual the team have got some ideas to show you which we hope will get you thinking.
 I used a photo of the poppies in my Mum's garden.  The bottom layer is the photo with a 'photocopy' filter, the second layer is the same photo with 'coloured pencil' filter and the final is the photo 'posterised'.  The sentiment tag is Cosmo Cricket, Just a Note. Thanks for a great dare, it really inspired me.


  1. Fab card, lovely poppy picture and the layers with the different filters look great!

  2. This is gorgeous Janice, I love the layered effect. xxx

  3. Love the way you've used the filters for the layering of the photo - great card x

  4. Gorgeous card, love how you used a photo image and used different filters to create a beautiful effect.
    Thanks for sharing with us at the Daring Cardmakers this week!

  5. Wow Janice what a vibrant card loving all that red and clever you with all those layers.


  6. this is very pretty - so creative. My homemade cards always looked homemade so I gave up. This looks really good.
