My TCP post is just below this one today :)
Hello lovely people! Today begins the gorgeous sneak peeks for a new release at Power Poppy! I’m delighted to show you today’s set - Planning for Magnolias. It showcases this gorgeous tree flower that I wish I could grow in my neck of the woods! I think they are stunning.
One of my favourite versions of this lovely bloom is a type of Lily or Tulip Magnolia. It’s got these gorgeous deep purple to soft pink flowers that are so striking. I tried to capture that in the colouring of this pretty branch. After colouring it up I carefully fussy cut it out and placed it on this raised frame design that was cut using a Spellbinders Die. I really wanted to give it all that “white-on-white” look, and I love the way texture looks on white so I embossed all the layers in an embossing folder.
I was away when I coloured this so I didn’t take a picture of the Copics I used but I’m pretty sure the petals are done with RV00, RV63, RV66, RV69, the leaves with YG21, YG23 and the branches E21, E23, E25, E27 and the flower centers are Y21, Y35, Y38. Hopefully that’s helpful!
Beneath the framing, I inset the background layer and smooshed some light rose ink onto an acrylic block and then stamped the block onto the cardstock. It helps to distinguish it a bit from the upper frames. A few sequins and a satin bow complete the front. It almost gives it the feel of a shaker card.
Ah! Can you see where I missed a tiny bit of the branch in my colouring?! I’ll have to go back and fix that! :)
Inside I placed one of the pretty sentiments from the set and another row of embossed white cardstock.
Now, here’s the beautiful Bloom Brigade bringing you more inspiration with this gorgeous set!! We’ve got so much beautiful inspiration this week I know you’re going to love it! See you again tomorrow!
