Dancing with Daffodils

I was so excited to see Marcella's (Power Poppy) digital image release on Sunday.  I wasted no time in colouring this beautiful image called Dancing with  Daffodils.  What I love about digi's is being able to resize them.  I printed off  6 images all different sizes, and this is what I did with my first one.

After printing and cutting out the image I used copics to colour.  Then came the tough part.  I had a heck of time thinking of how I wanted to do the layout and colours, so pulled out different papers, still couldn't decide so I walked away.  Actually I left it over night (sometimes you just need to step away for a bit) and then today it seemed to fall into place.

I didn't have any ribbon in the blue tones that I wanted so I coloured some white seam binding ribbon using copic B66.  I also added a gold edge around the image using my gold krylon pen.  Since I added some gold to my card I decided to play along in the Power Poppy challenge this month.  The theme is "go for the gold"!

I added some hero arts glitter to finish off.

This was such a delight to colour, can't wait to do some more.

You certainly didn't waste any time coloring this up, and what a beautiful rendition it is! Your card stock is such a perfect match with the periwinkle, and then you made the ribbon perfect, too. Love the combo of dies. I don't have the Labels Twenty Eight, but thinking I need them for Devine Eloquence for sure. Such gorgeous coloring, Pauline. It's interesting to read your list of Copics. I saw this in the challenge and I'm so glad you entered it. Good luck on winning a stamp set! You can enter as many times as you like and I sure do love seeing your Power Poppy creations!

Your card is so beautiful, Pauline. Your struggle with the design ended with a beauty! I find the design the hardest part too. The die cut of designer paper was a great choice for this elegant card.

Wowsers Pauline! I love the richness of the blue with your values of yellow. Incredible beautiful card. Thanks for playing along with our "Power & Spark" challenge this month over at Power Poppy!
