Sneak Peeks Day 1: POPPIES!

Hello folks! The Power Poppy sneak peeks are here and when it comes to this first set -- we say "It's about time!!!" Shouldn't a company named after a certain flower have that flower in its line up? We say YES! So, without further ado.....


Poppies  is a much awaited set featuring not only two breath taking florals begging to be colored up in bold shades but four swoopy sentiments that try to pop some love and beauty into life! There's a big story behind the ginger jars that Marcella drew into this set, so you'll have to go over to the Power Poppy Blog while hopping to read up on it! 

On to my creation!



Can I just say I love the orientation of this illustration? Just dramatic and beautiful -- like those poppies are tiny faces just trying to find some sunshine! I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it up with Copic markers. I reached for these colors!  R01, R21, R32, R35, G20, G40, G43, G46, BV21, BV23, BV35, Y21, and YR000. 

And here, sweet stamping friends, is a close up!


The rest is just matting it all up! I should mention, the sentiment is also from this fabulous set -- isn't it perfect??? Okay, moving on! I used some of my scraps from my scrap bins. I know some of this is a mix of My Mind's Eye but some pieces were so small. They just seemed perfect though. I added a little paper piecing and a few candy dots from Stampin' Up in red and yellow. Add a few snippets of decorative paper with notched ends and....ta da! Done!

Now, you need to "POP" on over to see what the other Bloomies have in store today!
