Pleasant Poppies

Hello my friends, how are you all doing?  Well I hope.  On Wednesday our temps got up to 80 degrees and hubby mowed the lawn for the first time of the year.

The other day when I was using some of the blue tissue paper that comes in the Paper Pumpkin kits, I was trying to think of other way to use it.  Well I saw a video over on Frances Martin's blog where she stamped on white tissue paper and the light bulb came on!  I believe it is called Faux Linen technique.  Here is what I came up with.

I colored the image in on the back-side of the tissue paper with my markers.  I really like how it came out!  A nice way to use what some would throw away.
