Hello Friends. I’ve been sidelined this week with a head cold and feeling a little miserable....so I’ll keep this short and sweet with some pretty posies from Power Poppy. It’s the very lovely Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips set. Stamped onto XPress It Blending Cardstock and coloured up with peachy Copics (R00, R01, R10, R12, with some BV00 thrown in, the greens on the leaves are YG21, YG23, YG25). The little hello sentiment is from our Cozy Cupfuls set.
I wanted to tie in the gold theme from our Power and Spark Challenge: Go for the Gold from back in March, so I took out some gold shimmer paint and ran it along the edges of the stitched circle, added it to the veneer heart, daubered some circles onto the background paper and splattered some onto the heart paper. Add a couple of gold sequins and a gold embossed sentiment and it’s very shimmery and luxe. You might even be able to tell that I added a really light wash of gold shimmer over the leaves and petals of the flower once it was all done.
We do hope you find some time this month to join us for our Power and Spark Rewind this month. You can choose any of the themes we’ve had this year, which are all listed HERE. You could win a Power Poppy set of your choice!
