It’s a gorgeous sunny day! We’re celebrating with our Share Your Sunshine Collection at Power Poppy bringing you some stamped sunshine. Today’s set, Sunny Harvest is going to delight you! It’s a combination of gorgeous sunflowers, bittersweet berries and chinese lanterns. It’s just full of joy! As sunflowers are a favourite of mine I had to start there.
Sunflowers come in so many fabulous shades, but I do love a traditional golden yellow, especially in a bunch! So this wrapped bundle of sunflowers with the rich yellows contrasted with some deep blue was the direction I went. I wanted the design to have a rustic, almost masculine feel so I stuck with lots of straight lines, and blocks of colour, as well as sequins, linen thread and a felt flower accent.
I added some colour to the felt by giving it a few Copic strokes of colour to match the flowers and deepen it from a bright yellow to more of a warm yellow. I wound the linen thread through the sequins to help your eye travel along the design and to mimic the ties on the flower bundle too.
Here’s the inside of the design stamped in Memento Peanut Brittle ink.
Here are the Copics I used.
Now head on over to the rest of the sunny show from the Bloom Brigade!
