Power Poppy: The Final Day!

Hi all and welcome to the final day of the Power Poppy Digi Release! Today's image -- Countryside Bouquet -- is such a beauty don't you think? Those vibrant flowers are just screaming to be added to your next creation! What a delightful mix of California Poppy, Cosmos and Russian Sage! And this digi set comes with a beautiful sentiment. See? It's just one more addition to Power Poppy's fantastic Digital Sets!

On to my creation! Just like the past two days, I wanted to challenge myself a bit to be inspired by something out of the norm when creating. So, I challenged myself to pick three decorative papers -- use only those three (other than a card base) and then, use those colors dominantly in my creation! So, here's what I picked....

I chose a mix of purples, rich oranges and light blues for my image and I really love how my card turned out! I wish I could share the Copic markers I used but honestly, I forgot to write them down! Sorry! After printing off my image on to Cougar Opaque White Card Stock, I took my time to color this beauty up! I used a Spellbinders Classic Circle die to cut out my image and then, I used a Grand Scalloped Square die for my plaid mat. Add a button, some twine, a bit of seam binding white ribbon, a bit of orange lace, a wee bit of paper piecing and... ta da! Easy peasy! I chose a really simple layout because I really wanted my image to take center stage!

Wait 'til you see what the rest of the Bloom Brigade created with this image! I know some of your jaws are going to drop for sure!

Oh, Julie, this is a stunning bouquet, and I just love how you've really made it center stage! I love your coloring and beautiful layout with simple embellishment, and I also appreciate your sharing your creative process. I often do the same and find my papers to use as a color pallet (much like a quilter does...ha!). Really gorgeous card, and I am going to love this set too! Hugs!

So you and Dawn have used the same colors. The same but different. I like the papers and the button tied with twine. The simple circle was the perfect frame for the these lovely flowers.
