One of the things I love about Jill Foster's work, is her stunning use of color–bold, rich and, in a word, spectacular.  In an eye riveting, jaw-dropping, walk into a light-pole kinda way. And, she makes me want to be just as daring. *wink*

I was inking and sponging a considerably large area, and noticed that dragging them across such a large surface was abusing/tearing up my sponge daubers–too much pull across the paper, so I switched to some cosmetic wedges and that seemed to work just fine.

Used Versafine to stamp over the top in a nice rich/intense black.  Then I stamped the poppy again with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a scrap of Sugar card stock so I could color it in with Copics and trim it out to 3D mount it over the top for added dimension.


When I was done, I hemmed and hawed . . . over what kind of base card to use.  I finally just went with my favorite because I loved the way the focal panel literally pops against the contrast of pure white.

Hey, Mikey.  I likey!!!
