Power Poppy Day 5: Let's Take Two!

Well, it's the last day of the sneaks! Tomorrow the Bloom Brigade will be kicking off its Power Poppy Hop, letting you get another peek at the Share your Sunshine Collection before you hit the Power Poppy Shop! What fun! Today's set features an image you've seen before but its now making its debut in polymer!


What's not to love about Geraniums? And this set  -- Geraniums Take Two -- offers two very different and very happy renditions of this robust flower! This potted up version in a rustic old pot next to an antique plant mister is the definition of charming! Don't you think?

On to my creation!

I had so much fun coloring up this vignette that I literally got lost in it! A splash of reds (R20, R24, and R27) for the petals. A dash of greens (G20, G21, G24 and G28) for the leaves. A few shades of copper for the terra cotta pot (E08, E31, E00) and a little C00, C03 and BG000 for the mister. Add a little W00, W01 and W03 as a bit of shading and that's pretty much it! 

I die cut my image out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two and while the die was still on, I did sponge on some Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks. I added the sentiment from the set and then matted it all up with some Bazzill decorative paper and May Arts burlap trim. Add a little wooden button and that's pretty much it!

Here's a close up!

Want to see the rest of the Bloom Brigade share some "happy?" Then, hop on over and see these fine ladies and their beautiful creations!
