Friendly Foxglove

Have you been having fun perusing though the gorgeous inspiration in our Midsummer Stunner Release?  We’re half way through with two more beautiful sets to show off to you today, Dynamic Duos:  Foxglove and Ranunculus, and Everythings Even Rosier.  These two sets show off some of our previously release digital sets that you’ve fallen for, now redone for polymer with gorgeous sentiments added.  

I’ve started with the Foxgloves and Ranunculus set, and despite my absolute love for ranunculus....I decided to dive in with the friendly foxglove today.  

I must have been in a very bohemian mood when creating this card, because it definitely has that feel with all the colour and pattern, but these foxgloves are just so pretty that I couldn’t help myself.  I’ve given them a lot of vibrant colour with Copics (I’ll list them below), and added in some sparkle on the bees wings and some white accent dots with a white sharpie. Isn’t that curliqued sentiment fun?  

I found some fun sparkly cardstock from Bazzill at my scrapbook store and thought that the fun orange shade paired well here.  

Some fun and funky patterns from my designer paper stash, buttons and twine finish it off.  Gah, just look at those chubby bees!  I love them.  They do this exact thing in my garden in my lupine, tucking their little bodies into each bloom in search of pollen!  It always delights me to watch them.  

Sorry I didn’t take a picture of the Copics I used, but I did write them down, so I’ll list them for you. 

Leaves:  YG21, YG23, YG0000 YG11, YG13, YG17, N3
Foxgloves:  YR20, YR21, YR15, YR16, R22, YR02; RV63, YV52, RV66, RV69, B12
