Amoung Spring flowers, tulips are my all time favourite. So I love that on Day 4 of our May New Releases at Power Poppy we get to show off these beauties.
We used to have some stunning burgundy tulips at our home in the US, they were one of the flowers I hated to leave behind, so today I created a trio of stripedy tulips in that deep burgundy red colour.
Aren’t they gorgeous? I like this rich palette with some old SU papers I found in my stash, so I gave my flowers some colouring to match them with Copics, adding some burgundy ribbon, deep blue cardstock to contrast, and some twine and tiny burgundy pearls and sewing.
Here is another look at the colouring which was really fun to do. I also added a wee bit of colouring into the open letters of the sentiment to deepen the colour a little.
Here’s the Copics for this lovely palette.
And to wrap up this gorgeous week HERE is the link for the Tulips in the store, we know you’ll want them to complete your collection this month! We are excited to have you jump in on the challenges this month with these great sets! Thanks so much for all the fun this week and for all your kind words.
Here is our beautiful Bloom Brigade in action:
