What a Friday beauty we have to show off today! It’s a brand new digi from Power Poppy that the Instant Gardeners introduced the other day, the very lovely Ranunculus. Now we get to play with it...and it’s a beaut! I just love Ranunculus and this showy arrangement of them really shines.
I printed the image onto XPress it Blending Card stock and made it quite large to be able to take center stage on the card design. I die cut it with Simon Say’s stitched rectangle die and then coloured it up with Copics. As you can see the lightsource in the colouring is top left and that really brings it all to life.
The papers are really beautiful (Echo Park), and that’s where I took my colour cues from. I popped the image and the frame I created with the die, but then layed the background paper behind, almost like a floating frame.
Accented simple with some twine and an enamel dot, sometimes that’s all you need.
Here’s the inside of the design where I made use of the lovely sentiment and added a little colour to the word “peace”.
Here’s the Copics I used above.
And here’s the Power Poppy Team playing along today, I know they will wow you with Ranunculus!
