Cuppa Buttercups

PPAUG1603D_CuppaButtercupsIt’s the 25th of the month and you know what that means — a new digital release from Power Poppy! This month’s release is a much simpler image — one that can be colored up in a matter of minutes. Cuppa Buttercups was introduced in Power Poppy’s very first release in the set called Marcella’s Mixtape. So here it is, fine-tuned a bit and presented with all new sentiments.

Like what you see? Want to see more? Of course you do! So be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Instant Gardener team for a little inspiration.
