Primroses are SO beautiful. Last spring we went to Vancouver Island and it was prime-time for all the beautiful flowers blooming. I was so taken by the little flower boxes full of primroses at the little shops and cafes. When I knew Marcy was illustrating these primroses, I sent her a picture of some of the ones I had seen and so this part of the stamp set feels extra-special to me. I just had to use that part of the set first :)
Aren’t they just so pretty and vibrant! I gave them lots of rich colour with my Copics and then pulled it all together with some pretty papers I had in my stash. I thought the background flowers looked a little like primroses.
Here’s the picture I sent to Marcy and you can see I used those white-edged, yellow-centered primroses for this design. They’re just so lush and vibrant!
Here’s a close-up of the design, the soft bluey-green background really helps the flowers pop. You can see I’ve added some BV00 and BV02 in the shadows of some of the flowers to create that sense of shade in the colouring. Here’s the Copics I used below.
And now, here’s the fabulous Bloom Brigade, ready to show off how much more lovely this set is (sigh, can it get any better? Yes it can!) ...there’s so much creativity packed into this stamp set! Just wait till you see the Auricula Theatres and hear the story behind them!
