Poppies ?

I am not sure what these flowers are suppose to be, I was thinking they were poppies so that is why I colored them the way I did.  When I showed Greg he asked why I colored them that color, I can't remember now what kind of flower he thought they were.  I told him that is the beauty of a blank canvas you can color them anyway you wish :)

Country diary of an Edwardian lady-- stamp set from Cardmaking and papercraft magazine, I colored it with markers
My Mind's eye -- the sweetest thing paper
Spellbinders -- A2 Divine Eloquence die
Craftaroo -- Rhinestones, colored w/markers

I did a bit of shading while the die was still in the paper with Old Paper distress inks.

I have had a touch of the flu today but I am finally starting to feel a little better, not something I want for the weekend.

Hope your start to the weekend is a good one,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and commenting,

I do hope you're feeling better today Connie! The flu is just awful and makes one feel absolutely terrible.

I agree with both you and Grace, the flowers look like poppies to me as well and I think they're beautiful. The sky is the limit, color your flowers to your heart's desire. I've been teal colored poppies on a card and they were absolutely stunning . . . card making is subjective . . . go with where the breeze takes you. Hugs!!!
