It seems perfect to usher in Spring in the Northern Hemisphere with some gorgeous new Dancing with Daffodils courtesy of Power Poppy! You may have seen the amazing work the Instant Gardener Team did with them on Monday, and now we’re here with the Bloom Brigade to show you another round of daffodilly inspiration.
Isn’t this arrangement just gorgeous? Marcy always puts so much into her designs. I love the combination of daffodils and periwinkle and that little snail crawling up the greenery! I printed the digi on XPressIt Blending Cardstock and then set to work with my Copics, die cutting it out with a Spellbinders Labels Eleven. I have a deep love for the symbolism of daffodils with a husband who is a two time cancer survivor and in Canada it’s the symbol for hope in cancer treatment, so I think this little combination is so special!
For the background layer I took out some ombre designer paper, and a new Tim Holtz Stencil I bought (Gothic) and covered it with embossing paste. I just LOVE the dimension and texture it brings to the background while adding a real elegance.
Other accents are simple seambinding and coloured rhinestones (with a B63 copic marker).
Here’s another look at the pretty damask print with the embossing paste and the lovely sentiment.
Here’s the Copics I used pictured above.
The gang’s all here to play today... check out their dabbling with daffodils!
