Sending a bit of Sunshine!

Well Hi-De-Ho there stamping friends! Guess what? It's the 5th, which means it's time for a little Power Poppy Digi on the 5s release! If the date has a "5" in it, Marcella has a little digi fun to deliver that day! Today's "catch" is one that is sure to deliver sunshine both near and far! Here's a look!



Here's a peek at my creation!


I absolutely adore sunflowers and so this image -- Sunflower Power -- is going to be one that I print off and color with reckless abandon -- I just know it! I should mention, before I printed this image, I did do a wee bit of digital editing. If you look above, you'll see the full image. I only wanted the main flower, not the little flower that just is about to open up. So, using my eraser tool, I erased that one and then closed the stem with the help of a Copic Multi-liner. Easy peasy! That's why I LOVE digital images! You can truly use them to make all kinds of variations -- perfect for card sets or just to get some diversity with each card!

Moving on! I printed on Cougar Opaque card stock (I use the 65 pound), and then let my fingers do the coloring with these Copic Markers!


From there, it was just matting it all up! I did cut out my image and then fussy cut only along the left side. I added some paper piercing and some fun sequins and... almost done! The sentiment was printed, punched with a 1-3/4" circle punch (I reduced the size of the sentie just a bit from the original file) and then, I mixed and matched some green and yellow decorative paper!

Here's a close up! I almost forgot, I did add some dots of white paint pen to the center of my flower too.....



And that, my friends, is it! Like I mentioned, Sunflower Power, is ready and waiting for you to buy, download, print and color it up to share a little sunshine with anyone who needs it! I will say we have a mix of Bloomies and Instant Gardeners on hand to show off some of the other beautiful things you can do with this digi! Hop on over and see.....
