Bees in Foxglove!

It's the 15th of the month, which means, sweet stamping friends, it's time to plant a new botanical in the Power Poppy Instant Garden Collection. This one is spiky and dramatic and offers up trumpet-like blossoms that just beckon you to color them up!


With shades of white, blue, pink and even soft purple, Bees in Foxglove is truly a sight to behold! Our latest addition to the Instant Garden Collection just happens to be one that's a tall beauty that's heavy on the drama! Check out the lush stalks of foxglove (Digitalis) with three plump bumblees buzzing around doing their bumblebee thing! I also love the fanciful sentiment that Marcy paired with this set. Can you say cheery and good for any and all occasions?

With that kind of introduction, let's get to my creation!

I have to admit, before Marcy penned this beauty, I didn't really even know what a Foxglove was! It took some investigating and once I did the "google" -- I discovered all the beautiful colors these bold blossoms come in! When my mom saw what I was coloring up, she surprised me with this beauty after a trip to our local nursery! How sweet is that? Now, all I need to do to be inspired is walk out my front door!


Honestly so many different color options -- why not try them all! Here's a peek at the markers that I reached for....


After coloring, it was just matting it up and adding a little razzle dazzle to the bumbles' wings thanks to some glitter glue. I also added two sizes of sprarkly sequins as well! Since this image is so detailed and rather large, I kept it simple on the layout -- just playing up the image itself. 

Here's a close up folks!


And that, my friends, is it! Since the bees are all abuzz with this beauty, you can bet your bottom dollar that our team of Instant Gardeners and Bloom Brigade is too! You'll have to fly on over to their special places on the web to see what they have in store for you all!
