New Release! Cup of Columbine by Power Poppy

Time for another new digital release from Power Poppy and this one is another winner. Cup of Columbine features Columbine (Aquilegia) flowers intermingle with ruffled miniature Hosta leaves for a bouquet that will tickle your coloring fancy all the way through summer. You get two designs — one with the flowers and teacup only, and a second, more challenging composition with a baby robin snapping up a few of the Columbine seeds. Both images have a lighter “no line” version included.

Rowhouse Greetings | Cup of Columbine by Power Poppy

Marcella challenged us to create a color story of blues and purples which is easy to do because Columbines bloom naturally in so many different colors. Even hostas can be found in shades of vibrant blue and blue-green. My vision for this image gravitated towards vivid blues mixed with varying shades of aqua. After A LOT of experimenting with different marker combinations, I settled on two — B12, B16, B66 and BG00, BG02, BG34 – which I mixed and matched throughout the flowers. Since this digital set does not include a sentiment, I added one from the Daliah XL clear stamp set to complete my card.

Happy Birdie by RubberMoon

I recently taught a Copic class at The Queen’s Ink featuring this adorable stamp set from RubberMoon Stamps. This is a great set for students who are just starting with Copic coloring because the only technique necessary is basic blending. The stamp set includes one sentiment so I supplemented it with a sentiment stamp set from Penny Black.

I knew that I wanted to use a bright color scheme, but I made these cards in late December, long before the spring product lines were available. So I used traditional plaids and polka dots from Jolly Christmas by Authentique, allowing me to use up a holiday paper stash on spring time cards.
