Hello friends! Happy Friday to all of you. Today half of my family is helping my brother and sister-in-law pack up “stuff” in their move to a different house (those members of the family with large muscles), and half of us are getting things done around here for school starting on Tuesday. The summer is quickly winding down.
Now some of you who are keen observers of the calendar might be wondering...hey isn’t it about new release time from Power Poppy? You would be right....but we’re going to make you wait just a few more weeks for all that’s new at Power Poppy...and trust me it will be worth the wait. I’m so excited about what’s coming shortly - you will want to save your pennies for a fabulous release!
So today we’re all about finding some more new Peeps of the Week! It’s anything goes from Power Poppy!
Today I thought I’d play again with our beautiful Countryside Bouquet Deluxe set, and stamping it on cardstock and some lovely vellum for a softened effect.
I began by taking some of the smaller flowers from the set and stamping them in white Craft ink onto vellum and then embossing them in white. I like stamping in Craft ink for this effect because it gives you a bit of a thicker embossed image rather than with just VersaMark.
After embossing, I flip the image over and colour on the back of the vellum with Copics. It gives you a stained glass effect on the front side softening the colouring for a lovely background.
Then I stamped the main bouquet onto XPress It Blending cardstock and coloured it with Copics. Very simple accents including copic coloured rhinestones and some tulle and white lace.
Copics Used: (BV60, BV63, BV66, R24, R27, R29, R39, Y35, YR15, YG21, YG23, BV02, BV04, G43, G46)
So we hope you’ll play along with us this week!
HERE’S HOW TO PLAY: All you need to do is use the linky below and share a new Power Poppy creation. Just that simple! It can be anything -- a card, an altered item, a 3D creation, a set of cards, ANYTHING!
- We’ll accept entries up until Thursday @3PM EST and will announce the Power Peeps of the Week next Friday for our Peep of the Week post.
