Potted Primroses by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a new card featuring the Potted Primrose Stamp Set by Power Poppy. I’ve colored this image before, but it’s fun sometimes to pull out a familiar stamp and give it a new interpretation.

For my card, I stamped the image with Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic markers (see colors below). I played with the background colors a bit to try to get the plants to pop forward visually. I used the Moroccan Circles embossing folder from Sunny Studios to emboss a strip down the left side and added a 1/4″ strip of design paper for some color. The embossing is more obvious in the photo below.

Vital Rose by Power Poppy

Vital Rose by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with another card featuring the Vital Rose digital stamp by Power Poppy. I’ve been playing with no-line coloring and thought that this would be a great image to use.

The Vital Rose image comes with a no line version where the usual black lines are considerably lighter. I lightened them further (because apparently I like a good challenge). I kept a reference copy of the image nearby to help.

There is a fabulous video by Cindy Lawrence in which she colors this same image in shades of blue. She started by determining the darkest areas of each petal across the entire rose. I couldn’t visualize that, so I started from the center of the rose and worked petal by petal. It took awhile to complete and was pretty painstaking, but the end result was worthwhile.

Once I was finished coloring the image, I stamped a sentiment from the Floribunda stamp set by Power Poppy in Versafine ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I trimmed the image using the Nordic Frame die set by The Greetery. I layered the image with a gingham paper from the Tiny Check 6×6 paper pack by My Favorite Things.

It’s important to remember that sometimes Copic coloring has an ugly stage. I’ve learned that I just have to keep going and work past it. After all, it’s only ink and paper. If it’s still ugly in the end, then I can just throw it away.

I won’t say that it was quick and easy, but I am pleased with the results.

Created to Create by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a new project featuring the Created to Create Digital Stamp from Power Poppy. It’s wintry outside, but I’m ready to color spring flowers and this image fit the bill.

I couldn’t wait to color those daffodils and they set the color palette for the rest of the image. Clearly my excitement was in marked contrast to my late night coloring partner, who dozed off while I was picking out markers.

Although it was tempting to use pure yellow tones for the daffodils, I decided to select shades from the YG color family. I wanted to be able to transition smoothly from the leaves and base of the flowers to the petals and so I used moved from YG03 to YG00. I added a little Y02 to brighten the petals overall as well as R22 to provide a little more contrast.
