Remember!

This is a usual, quick post with an entry to this week's LIM challenge. For week 40 the theme is Red and Orange. I coloured up my rather gorgeous Woodware poppy and I think the term is called "feathered" my colours together  from my palest YR00 to myR59 using a couple of shades between to help with the blend.


It does seem to show up more orange than red in the photo but believe me,the centre near the pepper pot is unblended cardinal red! I did add a thin black matting layer just cos it needed it and a few dots of glossy accents.


I'm entering my card in the following challenges:-
LIM40,Red and Orange,
Catch The Bug November,Anything goes,
Crafty Catz 107,Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

Also,it'll soon be remembrance day,"Lest we forget"
