Poppies for Penny Black and More - Midmonth Creation

Already the 18th of the month, that means it's time for some Penny Black and More inspiration for our January challenge. This month it's all about girly creations. Come join us for a chance at one of the fun prizes. Any brand of stamps is welcome, but it has to be an actual rubber or clear stamp, not digital. You are also allowed to use a Penny Black stickeroo.

For today's mid-month post I used the poppy stamp from the set Blooming Garden. Stamped with memento ink and colored with copic markers.
Then I stamped the poppies again on post-it notes, cut out and used as mask so I could add ink to the background. The music sheet stamp is by Hero Arts. To finish it off I added gold glitter to the blooms and some washi tape with white card stock and a brad as an accent in the corner....kind of wish I left the glitter off...
