You might have already seen the gorgeous new image that Marcy released earlier this week at Power Poppy, Spring Meadow Bouquet. Isn’t it amazing? I just had to do some colouring with it today! Marcy put together a wonderful assortment of beautiful flowers, bleeding heart, checkered lily, summer snowflake and lilacs to create this bouquet. With such detail in the flowers I decided to colour them all in a basic colour family with Copic RV colours.
As I was colouring the tiniest little spots of green in the summer snowflakes my YG03 let out a huge blob of colour. I almost died. It wasn’t just a little blob either. So, I tried to rescue it with lots of work from my Copic Blender moving the colour to the center of the blob and then out to the back of the page, but it kept a light green hue near the butterfly. I disguised it a bit with the background colouring and some shimmery glitter pen on the snowflakes and then on the butterfly and bee wings, but that will teach me for refilling the markers a wee bit too much! There is shimmer on all the summer snowflakes, the bee and butterfly, but it doesn’t really show in the photo.
Because I printed the image large to fit the whole card front, I really didn’t want to take away from any of the prettiness, so I kept the design simple, using a stitched rectangle die to cut into the image, giving it a framed feel. I sunk the middle of the rectangles in and then popped the outer frame up, then added the pretty stitched bow from TCP. I like the look of the design extending on both the frame and center.
Inside I placed the pretty sentiment from the set, and here’s the whole host of Copics I used below.
