We’re delighted to bring you another month long challenge at Power Poppy! This month Cindy is our hostess and she’s challenging us to go Shabby & Chic!
I was so excited to play with the new digital image from Power Poppy - Sunflower Power. Oh my, I just love it so much! I love sunflowers and their beautiful tilted faces and that gorgeous pop of yellow and brown. They sing of summer! I printed the image in a more sepia type tone to give the image a no-line colouring look. It sure looks great on this type of image. I used a stitched die to cut it out, allowing the smaller sunflower bloom to be “out of the box”, and then I coloured it all up with copies with a really loose style of colouring.
Then to make it shabby, I distressed all my edges, including this great warm paper (it’s an old pack that I had in my stash). Then I took a leaf die and some artichoke cardstock, cut and curled the edges to give them realism and tucked them behind the layers.
I sponged up the sentiment in some sunny yellows, added some vintage style brads and a little butterfly and voila! Shabby and chic :)
Here’s the Copics I used.
Here’s the Bloom Brigade in action with Shabby Chic, we hope you’ll join us in the challenge this month for your chance to win a Power Poppy set!
