Big Scripts ~ Power Poppy

Hello friends!!  I'm so glad you stopped in again today.  The Power Poppy Bloom Brigade is featuring Big Scripts today that are all handwritten by Marcella herself.  They are super fun and can add just the right amount of punch to any project.  Now, I stepped WAY OUT of my comfort zone today and went with a CAS graphic feel.  I tell you, these cards take me a ton more time to make than my detailed vintage ones.  Seriously.  I am happy with how this simple little "hello" turned out though.
I decided a conversation bubble would be kind of fun as a frame, so I created one in Word, printed it out on copy paper, cut it out and traced it onto cardstock...only because my printer HATES heavy card stock.  It has quite the attitude and spits it out at me every time.  The nerve...I tell ya!  After stamping "hello" in the bubble, I just added a bit of doodling around the border.

Lastly, I splattered some acrylic paint in the background, embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder and added some Twine and Enamel Dots.

Now, for some more exciting inspiration, check out these Bloom Brigade Blogs:
That's it!  Easy Peasy, with a sweet little "hello".

Since it's Friday, it's also Power Poppy Peeps Challenge.  I hope you'll find some time to participate.  Here's a link for all the info on how to participate.

Okay, this is just too cute for words! I love, love, love that little word bubble and all the dots of color with those enamel dots. Creative and sweet at the same time Ms. Tosh!

Oh, Tosh, this is darling! I just love it and how you've made your own word bubble! Yes, it sounds like your printer needs an attitude adjustment - haha!! They can be persnickety!! I just love the blue with the black and lots of white, and I love the twine with the enamel dots and very "in" today! Yes, it's hard to do something that is out of your comfort zone, but I would never know that from seeing this beautiful are! It's going to make someone very happy! Hugs!

I really love the clean graphic feel - it’s so smart! I really love the speech bubble to show it all off and the awesome bunch of cute!

Oh, I hear you... When you step out of your comfort zone it's slow going. However, you did a FABULOUS job on this with the bold "Hello". I can't help but notice how deftly you combined the print of the designer paper with the embossed pattern. Yay, Tosh!
