Fire and Ice.....Hot or cold Colours at TioT's

Fire and Ice .....
 Hot or Cold Colours.
is the theme for the new challenge at
  Try it on Tuesdays

I chose to use Hot Colours  on this card today.
Please pop over to TioT's to see how we all interpreted this theme.

The poppy stamp [Sheena Douglas] is water coloured.
I used distress inks to colour the immediate background.
The coloured layer is one of my own printed out papers.
A few trimmings came from my stash and now I have a simple  card,  that  was quite quick to make which may suit a few occasions.

This is the same card with the colour changed digitally  to   'cold blues'.
The red poppy card will be used   for a  friends Birthday. Fortunately they don't blog so I am safe to share it here.
The blue poppy I altered, just for fun. I have kept a copy of both on the computer
 for future reference.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you will join us over at TioT's with your interpretation of this theme.

If you have called in for T day, please scroll down to my earlier post

  4. Both variations are just GORGEOUS Yvonne! I love poppies and I adore your beautiful cards!

  5. Beautiful card! The stamped and watercoloured poppy looks so pretty with the ribbon and Distress Ink background 😁. Although I'm loving your digital mastery and I'm drawn to the 'cold blues' with blue being my favourite colour ...lol 😉. Wishing you a happy and creative week! J 😊

  6. A lovely card Yvonne, the poppy looks stunning in red and the blue.

  7. These are both beautiful cards, but I think I like the red poppy best. Maybe because it's so cold here and the blue poppy makes me feel chilly when I look at it. This is a beautiful card, though, and I think hot is winning.

  8. Fantastic take on our theme Yvonne! The poppy looks great both in red and blue.
