Get to the Point!

Hello all and Happy Friday! Hope you have wonderful plans in the days ahead! Well, it's Power Poppy Friday, which means a few of the Bloomies got together to show off our most recent creativity using Power Poppy stamps! Fun stuff!

So, let's get to it! I had colored this image a while back after seeing what another Bloomie did with a few Copic markers and a dot here and a dot there. Who's that Bloomie? ALLY COPE! She did a Pointilism tutorial I followed HERE over on Splitcoaststampers.com!


For my main image, I used the Countryside Bouquet stamp set and then picked up a whole host of markers. I used YR00, TR04, YR07, YR09, B60, B63, B66, G20, G21, G24, G28, B00, B01, RV0000, RV00, Y23, and Y35. AFter I was done adding my dots, next came matting it up! I used some pink and white twine, added some glitter glue and then cut my image out using a Spellbinders Die (I looked for which die but couldn't find it on the Spellbinders website) I layered it all up with some Echo Park decorative paper and the die cut overlay is thanks to a Stampin' Up kit that I bought a couple years back. The sentiment is from the Daffodils Stamp set.  I used a little clip from Stampin' Up to add the sentiment to my card front. 

And here's a close up!


And that, my friends, is it! I have to say that you can go as heavy or as light on this technique as you like. My coloring was pretty sparse compared to the beautiful display of color that Ally whipped up. You might want to click on over and give this technique a try!

Now it's time to turn things over to my fellow comrades in creativity -- the Bloom Brigade! Stop on over and see what they have in the spotlight over on their blogs!

This is so absolutely lovely Julie, it's amazing how this little dots of color add so much dimension to the image. Your layout frames it just perfectly.
Thank you so much for sharing.
