It’s the 15th of the month so that means a new digital release from Power Poppy and this month Marcella has outdone herself. Earlier in the summer, Marcella spent time immersed in the study of prairie wildflowers, looking through the native plants of regions all over the country, including the Midwest, Great Lakes region, and the Northeast. Marcella first shared this image when it was still a work in progress and then again as a fully realized watercolor. This beautiful prairie bouquet features coreopsis, coneflowers, asters, prairie clover, bee balm, and Indian paintbrush. I loved it so much that I threatened (jokingly, of course) to go on strike if Marcella didn’t release it in digital format. Luckily, I didn’t have to do that!
As you can see, I flipped and rotated the and then cropped it to focus on a specific area of the digital stamp. That’s the beauty of working with digital images — it’s so easy to experiment with the image to make it your own.
For the inside of the card, I printed the full image as a watermark and overlaid it with one of my favorite sentiments from the Countryside Bouquet Digital Stamp.
Be sure you stop by the Power Poppy blog and get some inspiration from the Instant Gardener team.
