Hi there and welcome back! I am so glad you could come back for Day 2 of Power Poppy's July Release. Did you enjoy yesterday's festivities? Quite a lot to take in, right? Well, that was just the beginning, and there is a whole lot more where that came from. So, when you think summer flowers...what do you think of? One that immediately comes to my mind is geraniums. I picture beautiful red or pink geraniums in pretty pots on freshly painted white porches.....lovely summer sightings here in the south but I imagine it is pretty similar everywhere. I have to admit.....I had quite a good time coloring this lovely image up...so much so, I colored it up a few times and you'll see it again soon....I promise! So let's all take a look at this gorgeous new set....
Geraniums. Aren't they beautiful? Earth certainly does laugh in flowers. Thankfully, she also has a wonderful sense of humor! Now, let's take a peek at what I created with this set....
Does Marcella know her flowers, or what? I absolutely love this image and I can tell you it was a dream to color! I printed my image, die cut it out, then colored it up with Copics. Next, I sponged a little Ranger Distress ink in Antique Linen and Evergreen Bough and layered it with some dark pink card stock. I actually chose a sentiment from an earlier set, Good Thinking:Renewal because this is an anniversary card. My dearest friend and her husband recently celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary, so I thought "Plant Love" was certainly appropriate. They certainly have sown many seeds of love along the way and 35 years is definitely a blessing and a testimony of their commitment to each other. She is a country girl at heart, like I am, so I thought she would really like these geraniums. The rest of the card is more dark pink for the card base, a layer of white card stock and a couple of designer paper layers. The ribbon is actually some from a gift that this same friend gave me a while back....I love the natural feel of the fibers and thought it would look great with the nature inspired theme. A little twine and button, my sentiment layered in a die cut circle and some flowers and leaves and this card is done. I did add a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush accents on some of the geranium blooms to give it a little sparkle. OH...and lookie....straight stitched lines.....can you believe it? Miracles never cease, do they? ;)
Can you believe the detail on these gorgeous blooms and leaves? Once again, Marcella has outdone herself. Are you itching to create your own project with this lovely image? Well, you can....like today! This is another digital image and it comes with a beautiful sentiment too....and both are available in the Power Poppy store immediately....like now....so what are you waiting for? You could have this lovely digital set with just a few clicks of the mouse and a few keystrokes! How's that sound to you? Don't forget to check out what the other Bloom Brigade ladies have created for you.....I can honestly say, prepare to be amazed. Make sure you leave them a little blog love while you're there and then get on over to the Power Poppy shop and get your own digital image! And don't forget to tune in tomorrow for a look at what Day 3 will bring... another true masterpiece that I know you will love. So, take care and I hope to see you tomorrow. Thanks so much for stopping by and join me in wishing my friends a Happy 35th Anniversary! ***S & B-sending much love to you and wishing you many more years of happiness!
