Pure Fragrance from Power Poppy

I love the smell of fresh flowers.  When we (used to) go to the mall and walk by a flower shop, I always want to  take my steps a little slower and dwell in the fresh fragrance of the blooms.  Today we have a gorgeous new image to show you from Power Poppy that may make you wish for scratch and sniff on your screen!  It’s called Pure Fragrance Digital .  It’s a stunning blend of showy florals: iris, foxglove, wild rose, and bellflower in a elegant little French glass perfume bottle.  I printed the image up to fit most of the card size, which gave me lots of room for colouring.  

Colouring is done with Copic Markers, with the addition of Prismacolor Pencils in the nooks and crannies.  I’ve added a bit of pale blue buffalo plaid in the background paper to soften it, but the details are very simple, just to show off the beauty of the image.  Don’t you love the little raspberries next to the bottle?  I gave them a golden raspberry colouring to pair with that beautiful apricot wild rose, and the dainty foxglove.  You can see that I’ve tried to tie in each of the colours of the flowers into other parts of the image so that it works well and is cohesive.  

Be sure to stop by the Bloom Brigade because they have such gorgeous designs to who you with this image and another stunning new image that Marcy is releasing called Volumes of Beauty.
