Asters abuzz

Well here we are, a start to another week.  I've been dying to use my new digi images from Power Poppy.  I had a bit of free time on Sunday, so this is what I came up with.

I'm using Power Poppy's digital image called Asters Abuzz.  There is also a challenge going on over at Power Poppy this month called "hang some paper", so basically use 3 different patters or colours of designer papers on your card.  I am entering this card into their challenge this month.

After resizing and printing the image I used copics to colour.  I then cut it out using a spellbinders circle die, left the die in place then sponged some SU Soft sky around the edges.  I then used my gold kyrlon pen and send around the edge.

Designer paper is from Authentique - summer collection.  I also distress the edges of the paper as well as sponge some walnut stain around the edges.

To finish off I added some ribbon, glitter  and sequins.

stamp - Power Poppy digital - Asters abuzz
ink- copics -BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07, G24, YG17, YG67, BV11, B63, YG01, YR31, Y13, Y18, Y19, Y23, Y38, YR24, E08, E79
dies - spellbinders circle & square dies
paper - cougar white 100 lb, SU Crushed Curry, Authentique - summer
misc - sequins, ribbon & glitter

Thanks for the visit, see you soon,

Isn't this pretty! The paper is so cute with it and you've matched up your colors in the image beautifully. I just love seeing what you do with your Power Poppy stamps and I was waiting to see if this one had joined your collection. Happy day! I just have to say, too, that the yellow polka dot ribbon is adorable. I do love yellow and white! Glad you could enter it in the challenge!

So beautiful Pauline. I love the look of that gold pen on the edge. I always seem to mess mine up when I try that. The image and papers match perfectly. Hugs!
