We’re back this week with a new round of inspiration from Power Poppy, and this week I’ve got some more ideas for our Winter Blooms Challenge from Stacy. One of my all-time favourite images from Marcy (and that’s saying something) is this little vase of hellebore, or lenten roses. I don’t know what it is but, I just love these simple blooms that come to remind us that winter doesn’t have the final say :). Marcy has them in digitial format in this set, Hellebores.
For fun this time I flipped the image 180 degrees so that the vase is aligned on the right side of the page. That is another really nice advantage to using digi images.
I looked up some fun new colours for hellebores and found this one below that I wanted to replicate.
Of course, in creation they are much more beautiful and natural, but I enjoyed playing with those yellowy greens and that deep pink, plus that really rich green in the leaves. It was a fun combination to colour.
The design is quite simple and clean with strips of paper and washi tape, and then a little bit of rhinestone scalloping as a pretty little bit of bling. The sentiment is stamped in Memento Gray Flannel from the set Nice Things To Say. I’m sending it to my sister-in-law who lost her beloved grandma recently. I know she’ll appreciate it.
Here’s the Copic collection for the colouring.
And now the rest of the Bloom Brigade playing along today....
