Another Sneaky Peek ... beautiful Poppies

I'm back with my second Sneaky Peek.  Today, I'm showing you a stamp from the new Red Gingham range called 'Poppies'.  It's absolutely gorgeous and is probably one of my favourites:

I crackled the background on a piece of mountboard and painted over it with some beautiful Silkies paint (which I won in a raffle!).  Next, I stamped and embossed the image with black embossing powder.  I painted over the flowers with the Silkies paint again to give depth to the colour.
Then, I aged the edge of the mountboard with Black Soot Distress Ink and highlighted it with Wow gold embossing powder.
I added silver eyelets with my Crop-a-dile and threaded some gorgeous black and white gingham ribbon through for the loop.  Finally, I attached the calendar with two pieces of ribbon.

Hope you like it!
