Go Wild!



I’m back for Day 3 of Sneak Peeks at Power Poppy this month!  Today is another gorgeous polymer set that puts a bunch of birthday happiness in a jar (or many jars) :)  Here’s Go Wild!  



Did you know that today is Marcella Hawley’s Birthday???? What a perfect way to celebrate this amazing lady with all of her creative prowess than with a gorgeous birthday set that showcases what Marcy does best....plants and flowers.  Nobody does them better!  Happy Birthday Marcy...I think the name of this set describes your bundle-of-life-personality too!  Have a spectacular day!  Go wild girl!  

This little scene in particular is so charming...a little windowsill of blue-green glass bottles and some pretty plants inside.  I think it’s so full of whimsy and sings those sweet days of spring.  The image is colored up with Copics with some really soft shades of blue, green and periwinkle and then cut out with this stitched square die.  

I went perusing through my stash of papers to come up with some pretty pages in random packs to keep it soft and serene.  



For accent I embossed the background, added some sparkly enamel dots, a peek of some clear sequins and then some pretty seam binding to finish it off.  Isn’t that the sweetest scene?

Oh, Christine, these colors are fabulous! I love the soft yet vibrant colors of your DP and love the embossing. Now this image is what captured me (it's a good thing you all can't hear me sigh and ooh each time I open your blogs...hehe!). What a stunning image that you've colored so softly and beautifully! I LOVE it and love the embellishments...it's gorgeous! And, yes, what a wonderful birthday celebration you all have given to our amazing Marcy, who continues to wow us with your artistic gifts both in her drawings and her words. She truly is a bundle of life...and it always comes through it her delightful descriptions each month. I love them. And what a blessing you all are to her and to us as you share and inspire! Thank you...hugs, sweet friend! Can hardly wait for tomorrow.
