Hello Yellow and Hello Friday! Today we’re bringing you another round of inspiration at Power Poppy! We’ve got a great challenge going on this month to STRETCH yourself and create a tall card and also to use something new you haven’t done before. So, here’s my latest tall design showing off our set Countryside Bouquet Deluxe.
I really wanted to play a bit with a softer more monochromatic design, so I stamped the bouquet in a soft gray Memento Ink, and then only added colour in soft yellows and warm grays. To work with this piecy layout I stamped a second time with another stamp in the set just showing off the two little cosmos blooms. Then I put it all together with some pretty patterned paper (and old MME pack In Bloom), and added in some sewing to define the space.
Just a bit of Baker’s Twine and enamel dots complete it. There’s just something soothing about stamping in a softer colour and then using soft colours to fill it in that I really like, even though I’m more of a bold colour girl.
Here’s the Copics I used in the colouring.
And....now you can jump in! Join us in STRETCHing yourself! Playing along gets you in the running for a Power Poppy set of your choice!
Here’s the Bloom Brigade showing off more today...
