It always gives me such pleasure to introduce a new Instant Garden release -- that's the name Marcella gave her digital line of Power Poppy stamps. Cute, isn't it? Clever. Today we have the aptly named Bowl of Beauty. Girl knows how to draw her flowers!
This one comes with or without the bowl, including black line or no line. Either way it's gorgeous.
I've been enjoying different watercolor mediums with my Power Poppy digis lately. Each has its own merits, but my current favorite is probably the Gansai Tambi paints, and that's what I used on today's card.
"The fourth installment of our Café au Lait bowl bouquets is filled with some of my very favorite plants: Hellebores, Ferns, and a luxurious Tree Peony with stems of Spanish Bluebells. Of course I had to call it Bowl of Beauty, because I know that anyone coloring this one will bring forth beautiful results. A polka-dotted vintage bowl can be done in so many sweet ways to complement the flowers."
I used the no-line version, which you probably already figured out. I contemplated a sentiment, but decided to leave the art on its own.
This 5" square card is finished with a border of blue which is the negative left over from cutting a Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One. I'd saved it from another project, slipped right back into the envelope that holds the dies. That's how I keep all my spare die cuts. How nice that I found it ready and waiting when I opened the envelope! It appears to have been Copic colored, which matched the Bluebells in the painting rather nicely. Added a gold peel off sticker trim and mounted everything on a base of rich purple-y textured card stock.
Please visit the Power Poppy Blog to see all Marcella's photos and information. She writes a wonderful post AND she'll link you up with all the designers who are sharing their artistic interpretations of Bowl of Beauty.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm leaving you with a wish you a beautiful day!
