Just Abuzzzzzzz With Colorful Fun!

Hello all and happy day after the Fourth of July! Hope you had a star studded celebration with family and friends! I know I did! ;-)

Today brings a different kind of celebration -- an explosion of color and fun! It's one that kick starts a brand new offering from the ever-so-fabulous Power Poppy! Today marks the start to the Digis on the 5s releases! What does that mean? Well, it means more digital stamps, more flowers, more fun, more offerings in Power Poppy's Instant Garden! Now, on the 5th, 15th and 25th, you'll be able to look for a brand new or remixed illustration from the fabulously artistic Marcella Hawley!

So... let's get to that first release, shall we?

Asters Abuzz is available RIGHT NOW to purchase, download, print and color up with reckless abandon!

And, that's just what I did! On to my creation! 

After printing my image, I grabbed, of course, my Copic Markers! I have a lot going on color wise but these are the markers I picked up: V01, V04, V0000, G20, G40, G43, C01, C03, BG0000, Y15, Y17, and Y35. When I was done, I did add a wee bit of white paint pen to the clover to bring out the lighter tones on the leaf. See? Oh, yeah. Don't forget the glitter glue! You know I need a 12-step program to NOT put bling or sparkle on my cards! I'm sorry but the sparklies just make me happy! ;-) You can see I added some bling on the little die cut heart as well! 

And that, my friends is it! I will mention that all die cuts (even the fancy borders) are from Spellbinders and I had fun layering all those up with decorative paper! The paper is a mix from my decorative paper stash (Echo Park mostly).

Now it's time to buzz on over to my fellow Bloomies and Instant Gardeners to see what they whipped up using this brand new digi!

You really knocked this one out of the park, Julie! Aside from your totally gorgeous coloring, that pretty curve got me right off the bat. Perfect papers and love your shading around the image and the sponging along the curved edge. And, of course, the pretty heart shaped sentiment panel. Way too cute!
