Happy Power Poppy Friday with Daffodils!
Hi there and Happy Friday to you! I hope this post finds you doing well! Have you been getting any of the warmer than normal weather lately? We sure have! It's not even March and tulip trees are blooming everywhere and the daffodils are up...which inspired me to pull out Power Poppy's Daffodils stamp set for my card this week. I decided to make a round scalloped shape card and use colored card stocks to mimic the colors I used in my daffodils.
I started by stamping the daffodil image and my sentiment from the Bloomin' Wonderful stamp set with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on a circle card stock die cut. After coloring my image with Copics, I added some shimmer with a clear Wink of Stella pen and some Martha Stewart glitter, then edged my die cut panel with a Krylon 18KT Gold Leafing pen. I sanded it a teeny bit afterwards to age the finish somewhat then added some pearls. The rest of my card consists of several layers that I die cut using different shapes to give the card some texture and depth. I sponged on some Papertrey Ink Chamomile and Chai inks to age the papers and then assembled all of the layers, using foam dimensionals to pop up some of them.
I believe I managed to capture a little of the glitter in some of the photos. I can never get over all of the little extra details Marcella puts in to each of her images....truly amazing and always a dream to color! :)
Happy Spring to you! I hope you have been fortunate enough to have some pretty weather in your area...even if it is a little early!
Well, that is all for my card today, but several of my amazing Bloomie sisters have some Friday inspiration just waiting for you to see, so make sure you check them all out and leave a little blog love while you are there. So glad you could stop by for a visit and I hope you find your way back here again soon. It won't be long until Power Poppy's March stamp release begins....Marcella has some incredible things coming! Hope you have a great weekend and until next time, take care! :)
