Poppies Poppin' on May Day

It seems appropriate to be posting some poppin’ blooms on May Day!  And while I can’t leave a basket of flowers on all of your doorsteps, I can send you some virtual beauties with some lovely sets from Power Poppy.  Today I’ve used 3 different Power Poppy sets that showcase ....Poppies!  The main image uses Perfect Poppies digital set.  This way I can make it into a larger size that I like.  I’ve coloured it with Copics and paired it with a pretty purple background.  I used this same purple to do my shading in the leaves and petals of the poppy blooms.  It’s cut with a MFT Scalloped Circle die.  

On the white cardbase I stamped a few more poppy leaves using the Poppy XL stamp set to tie things together.  Unfortunately this set sold out in the sale Marcy’s been having Poppies.  You can see that I’ve added that same bit of purple around the background leaves, with a bit of pointillism.  

Lastly, I added the sentiment from Power Poppy’s stamp set Poppies.  I’ve included a bit of baker’s twine to ground the middle layer.  Feels like a bit of summer sunshine!

Christine, I had to stop by and let you know just how I was taken with this card! These colors are so "you!" In all the color combos you use, I am always drawn to the cards where you've mixed oranges with a cool undertone/backdrop. Stunning girl! Blessings to you and your family!
