Poppy Day

Remembrance Day 11th November 2012

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

I made my twinchie for remembrance day and will enter it in the Show us Your Twinchies Challenge #9 'Hot Colours'.
I used red pan pastel for the background and stamped poppy buds in versmark around the edges, more pan pastel on top to highlight the buds. The main poppy image is a stamped and embossed in balck using an old freebie stamp from a magazine, coloured with promarker and mounted on the background. I used black soot distress ink around the edges.

Here is my remembrance poppy:
