Okay, on to my creation!
I absolutely adore Power Poppy's new Floribunda set. All those beautiful blossoms! Because you can definitely get lost in all those petals coloring with reckless abandon, I wanted to create a card that showed you could use this mondo image without coloring it up! So, I grabbed some Versamark ink, a soft brush and some Pearl Ex. I have just about every color made of the mica powder and it's been years since I have pulled it out from the drawer. So, I thought, now was a good time!
You can see below that I also tried the Duo Blue-Green, which took on a more turquoise shade. I liked it but it wasn't as bold and I knew I really wanted those flowers to stand out!. :-)
I fussy cut the little guy and set him aside. I used a 2-1/2" punched circle and stamped the sentiment using Versamark and embossed using gold detail in. I mat it up on a stitched circle (cut out of really light turquoise paper) I added some green accents with my YG05 Copic marker just to add a little something more
Here's a closeup to show you the mica shine and the sentiment....

Julie Koerber >>> you are here!
Thanks so much for joining us this week and seeing all the new goodies! Good luck in the giveaway and I'll see you back here soon!
Love your card! The hummingbird is amazing.
I love the way you did your background! I will have to try that out. I haven't used my Perfect Pearls in awhile!
Such a beautiful card! Love the background! :)
Awesome new stamp sets! I love your mica powder background!
gorgeous background and just love your hummingbird...
Good to see that you can add a sentiment without having to cut out the middle. Both ways are great, but I am not too good at using an Exacto knife. You made that flower border stand out without using colors. A quick way to use it.
Very lovely card. Love the colors.
What a stunning card! I love the technique you used.
awesome technique - thanks for sharing
Beautiful card and I love the addition of the Pearl Ex. So pretty with this beautiful humming bird! Great job!
Stunning coloring and background!
Cool snd beautiful techniques. Love it ♥️
What a beautiful card! I love everything about it from the gorgeous background to the oh so beautiful hummingbird! Wow!
I like the colors you used---changing colors---so pretty!
A very pretty card! Love that you used pearl ex over the stamped florals for the background.
Beautifully done! Love this technique! Must give it a try - thanks for sharing!
The Mica Powder surly makes a beautiful background. So soft and velvety looking. The Hummingbird is a stand-out.
So so pretty - that pearl background is fantastic! And I love how you coloured the hummingbird
Oh my this is SO beautiful!! I love hummers and you did such an outstanding job on the coloring! The background is beautiful with it too :)
Your background is so beautiful, Julie! You've got me thinking I might like to do this in Versamark and chalks on white, hmmmm... Might be pretty!
Gorgeous card! Love the floral background and the beautiful hummingbird! Awesome colors!
Totally cute - that background technique is perfect!
The Spring Green Pearl Ex looks like gold - it's just beautiful! I haven't used my powders in a very long time, too. I might have to try this idea for a background, it's just stunning! The Floribunda is my favorite of the new set! Your card is fantastic!
Gorgeous card Julie. Love your idea of using Floribunda as a background stamp.

Everything about your card is awesome!
Oh so pretty, the hummingbird is dazzling!
Oh my! So lovely! The embossed floral background is so rich. The design focus on the hummingbird is awesome. tfs
This is a cutie pie little hummingbird! Great job!

The stitched circle is subtle but very important element.

Love how you created that amazing background for your sweet Hummingbird.
Having a "lovely day" just admiring your card. Makes me want to run for my pearl ex buried deep in my stamp closet! Lol. The color choices in your hummer are phenomenal!
Beautiful, I love it !
Wonderful background... I am pinning this for sure. That hummingbird is really something. And he or she looks so at home here. TFS this beauty.
Your card is so lovley! I love the hummingbird.
Julie, I love this card. I haven't used Pearl Ex in a long time but I am trying to get back into using the items I always enjoyed and this card is such an inspiration!
Coloring on the hummingbird is amazing.
Fabulous card Julie. I love how you created the gorgeous background and it shows so well that you not always have to colour every petal to make something awesome. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration.
Definitely one could get lost for days coloring this up, which would be wonderful, but I appreciate seeing this quicker yet equally beautiful way to use this amazing stamp. Love this gorgeous card!
This card is beautiful! Time to play with the mica powders again!
I haven't used my Pearl X for over a decade. Your card makes me want to find them and make something lovely. [I especially love how the little guy really takes center stage on your card against that great teal background.]
I have recently "discovered" Power Poppy...I'm truly in love with all beautiful talent that is shared. I wish I could illustrate as Marcella but the next best thing - I can color!
Beautiful card. The background is stunning, your choice of colours is fanstatic and your colouring if the humming bird is also fanstastic.
Beautiful card! I love the blue/green color palette, and the shimmer is lovely
Great card and inspiration. Thank youl
Beautiful card. Got to dig out my peerless powder, that's so gorgeous.
