I wanted to stamp some poppies on my art journal page. Since I didn't have a poppies stamp, I decided to create one with self-adhesive foam. I was in an experimental mode so I drew some whimsical flowers freehand on the foam, cut them out - and pressed them onto scrap foam board.
The foam board is about 9" x 9" so it is a large stamp. I really liked the resulting impressions on the journal page. Due to the nature of the foam, the poppies do not stamp evenly but instead create a cool texture. It almost looks as if I painted on the individual petals. I can leave the poppies as is or enhance them with ink or paint.
When I make my next poppies stamp, I'll create a smaller version.
The background journal page was originally pink. I sprayed on some homemade blue and then pink acylic sprays.
