We’re back for Day Two of the amazing Nature + Nurture August Release from Power Poppy! And for all of you who’ve been anxiously waiting....here’s In Praise of Sunflowers.
This set is one I really love because it puts these beautiful sunflowers that Marcy has previously released in digi form, now in polymer with awesome sentiments.
This beauty was fun to colour up with my Copics. To contrast the warm yellows of the flower, I added a soft bluey-green background and found some great chevron paper for the background to pair it with. I think the contrast from soft blue to bright warm yellow really makes that sunflower shine.
Behind the main panel, I added a vertical strip of white paper that I had used some embossing paste with a burlap stencil on. I like the bit of texture for the background, and it mimics a bit of the sunflower center.
A close-up of the flowers, with a smattering of enamel dots to accent and a tiny bit of grossgrain ribbon on the corner.
Here’s the Copics I used to colour.
Here’s the Bloom Brigade bringing you sunshiney sunflower inspiration today.
