The BIG DAY is here!

Hello all! The big day is here! After "teasing" you all with beautiful images that we KNOW you want to get your hands on to create and color with, you don't have to wait any longer! 

There's Bough Wow Wow, O Holy Night, Merry Littles, and Heaven and Nature Sing! Just click the links to see them for yourself in the store!

Well, it's pretty much tradition for the Bloom Brigade to take one of the sets from the week and show it off one more time for our Power Poppy Hop on Release Day! So, here goes!

Yesterday, I was telling you how I was using a new medium and I laughed -- I pretty much used Distress Markers for each card of this fabulous release! I am having a ton of fun playing. For this creation, I knew I wanted to make that little Lenten Rose accent in the set Heaven and Nature Sing -- well, SING! It's just too beautiful to  be an accent or even a background, don't you think?

I stamped using Memento Espresso Truffle and then reached for these markers - Shabby Shudders, Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door, Forest Moss, Scattered Straw and Wild Honey. I added some spritzing with the Distress Marker Spritzer using Antique Linen and then I used W01, and W03 Copic markers to shade around my image, blending with a Copic blender. I also added some white paint pen dots on the berries. And... that's it for coloring! 

The paper is Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage. Add a half doily, a Labels Twenty Two die cut (embossed and sanded around the edges), some 1/2" satin ribbon some red pearls, a splash of paper piercing,  a little gold ribbon and... ta da! 

Here's a close up!

And that, my friends, is it! You'll have to see what the rest of the Bloom Brigade chose to show off for this oh-so-fun Power Poppy Hop! I guarantee, it will be a fun way to spend a part of your Saturday! ;-)

I really love what you're doing with those Distress markers, Julie! You shouldn't tempt me like that. After all, I have a whole set of Tombows and about a thousand inks and a caseful of Copics... but coloring is just so much fun! This is so softly beautiful. I love the colors of the image against those gorgeous papers. You did SUCH a beautiful job!
