Watercolored Café au Lait Pears


Have you seen the new digital series Marcy is doing at Power Poppy?  It’s a vintage “Café au Lait” bowl series, filled with new goodies each time!  This month she released the second image called My Favorite Pair, it includes a lovely bowl filled with pear fruit, greenery, pretty little african voilets and a lovely little ribbon and note card.  It’s such a lovely image.  

I printed it with a lighter transparency on Arches 80 lb Watercolor paper, and coloured it up with my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers.  I wanted to do a bit of a different colour on the violets and make them more pink and then did a bit of an ombre look to the café au lait bowl in similar colours. 


The tiny sentiment on the note card comes from Power Poppy’s Potted Primroses set, stamped in a bright pink ink.  Designer paper from MFT, washi tape a button and some twine are all it needs being such a colourful image.  

I’ll let you in on some SALE news at Power Poppy this weekend....


Now pop on over for more inspiration today from....
