It’s Day 2 of our power-packed Power Poppy February release! Today we’ve got a really lovely set that is downright folksy! It showcases so many fun little elements that can be combined or used alone to create a folk-art feel. It’s called Folk Heart and it’s so sweet!
I decided to work with this sweet little bird in a heart wreath. One of the hallmarks of folk-art style from my research is the use of bold colour in a fanciful way. I totally went with that feel for my design.
I coloured up the little bird in some fanciful colours with Copics and then trimmed out the little heart, popping it up and placing it onto a Spellbinders Die piece. On the front panel of the cardstock I used a mini heart stencil and some embossing paste to go with the heart theme as a background element. I think it gives it that dainty feel.
Once the embossing paste had dried I added some strips of vellum, wash tape and silver cording around that layer.
That sweet little sentiment flag is the finishing touch.
Copics I used (again I was a away when colouring so I didn’t take a photo) Leaves: G40, G43, G46, Feathers: BG05, BG07, BG09, BG75, R24, R27, R29, Breast & Flowers: Y11, Y15.
The Bloom Brigade has lots in store for you today. Be sure to pop by and see what Marcy has to say about this sweet design too. And you won’t want to miss her beautiful tribute to her mom on this post as well.
