Power Poppy June Release Preview ~ Day 3

For my Waltzingmouse post, click HERE



Welcome to Day 3 of Power Poppy's June Release Preview!  Is this month's release just out of this world or what!!  I tell ya, I am never disappointed with Marcella's creativity and attention to detail.  And this Sassy Succulents set is so "Spot On" and trendy!!!  I adore the sentiments as well as the beautiful variety of succulents.

I decided to use the "no line" coloring technique for my card today, because I wanted the one image to "Stand Out", just as the sentiment suggests:  "Why fit in when you were born to Stand Out?" Dr. Seuss.  What a beautiful quote!!   I stamped the image and sentiment with Pistachio Memento ink and colored it with Copics.  The sentiment flag sentiment was stamped with Smokey Gray Versafine Ink.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory.


That's it for my project today.  If you haven't visited the Bloom Brigade listed below, be sure you do.  Those girls have some serious skills.  Just sayin'....

Here's a list of the Copics I used:  YG95, YG93, YG91, V06, V12, E35, E33, E31, T2, T1, T0, 0

That about sums up today's project.  There's more to share tomorrow, so I hope you'll stop by for a visit!!

See, I knew you would do something totally amazing and out of the box with this set and you certainly did! Love the single colored succulent among your masked images...such careful work that really has a stunning result! All of your soft colored papers are the perfect background for your image. Simply lovely, Tosh! :)

Oh, I love how you did a spotlight for one plants that mirrors the sentiment of standing out! Cool. Love the colors on the card too!

Allison Cope said...

That Dr. Seuss was a pretty smart guy, wasn't he? Why, indeed? I love how you've done this with the images stamped in green sort of nondescript in the background and the individual popping in the foreground. Love your shading around the images, too. They look so dimensional that they appear at first glance to be cut out. It looks like you did pop up the colored one -- yet another great idea. Nice papers and design. I just love it!

Jerri Jimenez said...

So gorgeous Tosh, a wonderful design! How clever to have the focus on that one succulent, so gorgeouse!

Conniecrafter said...

very cool idea to just color the one and add dimension!
