Everything's rosy.....


Hello everyone.  TGIF! All I can say is that this week has flown by so fast, but glad we have the weekend ahead of us.  Warmer temperatures this weekend - above freezing which is nice.  Although we really can't complain at the winter we have had so far, at least where I live, it's been very little snow, and with the rain this past week it has all melted away! No complaints here :).

So I'm back to share a card with you using the newest digi from Power Poppy - everything's rosy.
Marcella just 'wows' me every time with her floral digital images (and stamps as well). 

 After re-sizing it, I flip the image over just for something a little different.  That is the advantage of digital images, you can do so much with them where as a stamp - what you see is what you get!



I actually printed 2 this size, and started to colour one of them with copics.  Although I love my copics I find it difficult to get the shading to my liking, so tossed that one aside, and pulled out my prismacolour pencils and coloured up the 2nd image.

I cut the image out using spellbinders oval die, then used my silver krylon marker and went around the edges.  This was then layered onto spellbinders oval regalia. 

Designer paper is Prima - Tea Tyme.  Now you know we must have sparkly flowers, so I added some hero arts - prisma glitter to the flowers as well as some tiny pearls.  I also added some pearls around the edge of the regalia oval.  I used some silk ribbon to make my bow to finish this off.  

supplies:
Stamp - Power Poppy - digital everything's rosy
ink - laser printer, prismacolour pencils & gamsol
paper - Prima - Tea tyme, Bazzill - blossom, cougar white 100 lb
die - spellbinders oval & oval regalia
misc - silk ribbon, pearls, hero arts prisma glitter, quickie glue pen, silver krylon marker

Have yourself a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by today.

  3. This is amazing! I wish I could make my pencil coloring look this good. Your blending is so smooth. I recently had a disaster coloring with them on watercolor paper. With DT work you don't always have time to start over, so like it or not it's on the blog Monday. I won't do that again! Even still, I never get this smooth a look, no matter the paper. Anyway... it's a good thing I'm talking with my fingers rather than my mouth because my jaw is on the floor. I was waiting for this one with bated breath. My, oh, my! Gorgeous!

  4. Oh Pauline. What a gorgeous card. Your colouring is superb and your shading perfect. What a great idea to flip the image. You can never go wrong with a Power Poppy digi. As always, love your finishing touches -the silver krylon pen around the border, the beautiful Lacey die and lovely bow. I am sure that whomever receives this card will treasure it forever.
