Power Poppy Release: Countryside Bouquet


It's been a while since I got to hang out with the Bloom Brigade at Power Poppy, so I thought I'd jump in on today's release! This image is gorgeous... and since I requested the California Poppies, it's pretty special to me. When we're overseas and I get homesick, you'll see more poppies on my cards. When we arrived in CA in April they were blooming for me - what a welcome!


I'll share a little more of the process behind this card in a couple of weeks - I'm excited! It was colored with Touch Twin markers, and the colors I used are below. One great thing about digital stamps is the ability to resize them, and I love BIG floral images, so I made this beauty BIG! I actually got two cards out of the one image by printing it this size.


This Countryside Bouquet image is in the Power Poppy store now!

These are the Touch Twin Markers that I used - the card I made from the other side of the image was needed for a sympathy card, so I wanted softer tones:


Thanks for visiting me - I hope you'll take a peek at the beauties my friends have created too! Their links are below. Have a beautiful day!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I think your BIG image is a-w-e-s-o-m-e! I have GOT to try that! It never even occurred to me to make the image that big but that is just to show how wonderfully creative you are...and your coloring?...simply stunning, Dina! I always love seeing your take on an image, it makes me look at things in a whole new way! :)

  8. I love everything about your beautiful card, Dina. The bigness of the flowers, the simplicity of the design, the subtleness of the scoring, and the softness of the colors. Totally awesome.
