Hi there! Have you been enjoying the Power Poppy festivities this week? Have you already taken advantage of being able to get your new digi images as soon as they come out? Oh, I hope so! I am so happy to be able to share my card with you today....another gorgeous Marcella botanical! So feast your eyes on this lovely image....
I know, right? Sheer gorgeousness and I cannot tell you how much fun this was to color! So let me show you what I created using this beauty...
I started by resizing my image to fit the dimensions I needed for my main panel, printed it out, then die cut it using a square die. Then I colored my image with Copics. Next, I put my image panel back in the square die and sponged on some Ranger Distress ink in Antique Linen and edged it with my faithful companion, the Krylon 18KT gold leafing pen....I know, I am back on the gold kick again! Then, I die cut some more layers with squares and some dies from Spellbinders' lovely Captivating Squares set . I used burgundy, mauve and white card stock and then a bit of patterned paper. I assembled my layers using foam dimensionals for some to pop them up and that was that. I left this card sentimentless, which is something that I used to never do, but I am getting a little more comfortable with it. I can leave it plain or I could go ahead and put a lovely sentiment, like the one that comes with this digi, on the inside. I like having a few "all occasion" cards in my stash so this one will stay without a sentiment on it.
I absolutely love this image....the detail is amazing and the way that Marcella draws these images with shading cues, makes coloring them a joy. These are colored like the ones that are about to pop in my mother's flower bed.....there is nothing like beautiful peonies! Marcella actually has a little post over on the Power Poppy Blog about peonies that you should check out. Well, I hope that you are feeling inspired but don't stop here....please check out what my fellow Bloom Brigade team mates have created. I just know that you will love the gorgeous floral display created just for you! Remember, this is a digital image so you could have this in your inky little fingers today with a few clicks of a mouse and a few key strokes....just sayin'! :) Take care and I'll be posting again on May 1st for the Power Poppy Blog Hop! Hope to see you then and thanks so much for stopping by today! :)
