We’re kicking off a fabulous week of new releases from Power Poppy! I’m so delighted to show you all the beautiful polymer stamps that Marcy has designed for us because they are amazing! Today we’re beginning with the gorgeous Orchids Rock set. I showed a super sneak peek yesterday on the Power Poppy blog and today I’m showing you the other orchid image in this set. One of the things I really love about this set are the really fun and encouraging sentiments. The kind of words you’d want to say to a friend to spur her (or him!) on.
Orchids come in so many stunning rich shades of colour, but I seem to be stuck on this rich purpley shade, it’s one of my favourites because it’s a cross between purple and burgundy. The perfect mix!
The images are stamped on XPress It Blending card stock and then coloured up with Copics. I really wanted this one to have a fresh feel, so there is a lot of white space and angled panels with the pops of acid green.
I did a little ombre colouring on the sentiment, added a organdy bow and some little ribbon tabs on the design, and otherwise kept it really clean.
Here’s the Copics I used for colouring.
And here’s the beautiful Bloom Brigade line-up showing off their Rockin’ Orchids! Enjoy!
