Hello friend

I was so excited to receive my order from Power Poppy earlier this week, I couldn't wait to colour up one of the new images.

I ended up choosing one of the images in the set called Simply Camellias.

I stamped the image on cougar white 100lb card stock using black memento.  I then coloured the image using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.

My good friend Nancy surprised me one day at work  by sending over a 6x6 paper pad from Prima called Butterfly collection.  OMG if you know me I love paper and especially since this is 'nature' based. The papers are to die for in this collection.  I knew I wanted to use it with this image.  After colouring I cut it our using a circle die using the out of the box technique so I could allow the leave to spill outside of the circle edge.  I layered this onto a new die set called circle delight, and delightful this is!.  For the scalloped edge on the prima paper I used scallop borders two.

To finish off I added the sentiment stamped in black versafine, silk taupe bow, glitter on the flower and  a tiny wooded heart.  I just love how this all came together.  The colours are a bit softer in real - so pretty.

Pauline, this is so soft and beautiful, just like this precious and sweet camellia in the glass bowl! I love these gorgeous papers and the wonderful layout!! And your pencil coloring is gorgeous! I too love the owl header...we watched the Berry College eagles this year as they hatched and then fledged. What fun! So glad you got new PP stuff...and, yes, the new release looks fabulous! Hugs!
