More Days of Digis!

Hi all! I sure hope you've been checking in over that the Power Poppy Blog because there's been a ton of excitement brewing -- especially if you love Marcella's digital stamp sets! It's day four of the....


Today's offering is one that makes my heart skip a beat! I may be landlocked in Montana but I do love, love, love the beach. I love the sand in my feet, the sound of the waves and above all, just the way it makes me feel -- I know you know what I mean! So, it goes without saying that I absolutely adore this darling little vignette with shells, fern, plumeria and a handwritten note. Introducing Gifts From the Sea!




Doesn't your blood pressure lower just looking at this lovely little scene? I know mine does! Makes me want to "Seas the Day!" ;-)

On to my creation!

After I printed off the image, I reached for my Copic markers and just went to town. I wish I could share ALL the markers I used but honestly, I just grabbed on the go. There was a healthy mix of earthy shades with the rosy colors that I tried to bring out in some of the seashells. I grabbed some BV markers to color up the glass inkwell. I love Marcella's vignettes -- just such a joy to color up! 

And, here's a closeup!


I wasn't the only one that took this image for a spin. We have some of the Bloomies and Instant Gardners joining me today! And... I can't wait to see what they whipped up!

And, my friends, tomorrow is the last day of the 5 Days of  Digis and it brings another fun illustration that can be colored up in an instant! So... be sure to tune into the Power Poppy Blog to see how this all wraps up! 

Thanks for stopping by -- I'll see you all back here real soon!

Oh, Julie, I swooned when I saw your card on the blog! It is exquisite, and I love your soft color palette and amazing coloring! What a perfect and lovely layout...just love the tilted panels and scallop border...along with the sweet button. Definitely my favorite, and it reminds me of our time in Sanibel. I am so glad you made and shared this card! It’s a stunning one!! Hugs! xoxo

This might be my favorite of all the new digis. Beautifully colored and, as always, with an interesting design.
