Hello there and welcome back for another Power Poppy Friday! How have you been? We have been getting some very c-o-l-d weather here...complete with snow....again! I am loving seeing the snow, but the temperatures in the teens are getting a bit old....and the impact the weather has had on our camellias has not been good. Most of the about-to-open blooms were lost on two of our camellias and we are waiting to see about the other two....keeping our fingers crossed. So, I figured if I can't have the real blooms, I'll just color one up from Marcella's incredibly beautiful stamp set, Simply Camellias.
I started by stamping my image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on to white card stock. Next, I die cut the image and then colored it up with Copics. After that, I stitched some patterned paper along one side, then stamped a sentiment from the Prairie Cheer stamp set with Tsukineko's Versafine ink in Onyx Black. Lastly, the image panel was adhered to a blue card stock base. This finished card measures 3 1/4" x 4 3/4".
Don't you just love this darling little camellia bloom? As always, Marcella's amazing details make this a dream to color up. I chose to color this bloom as a variegated variety....actually, I am on the look out for a good variegated camellia to join our others. I am thinking if I could find one like this, we'd be set! ;)
So, that is all for my card today, but some of my Bloomie sisters have some lovely creations for your Friday inspiration, so make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there. Make sure you also check out the latest goings on over on the Power Poppy blog.....lots of good stuff to see! I am so glad you could stop by, and I hope to see you around her again soon. Until then...take care! And....stay warm! :)
