Power Poppy Foxgloves

Hello my creative friends!!  Every 15th of the month, Power Poppy releases some new delicious digi images and the Instant Gardner Team showcases them.  Well, this month, the 15th lands on a Friday so members of the Bloom Brigade are joining in.  I am so excited to share this image with y'all today.  I adore bees, and Marcy has included three darling plump bumblebees with this new Bees in Foxglove digital image.  Aren't they just A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E?!?!?!?! 

I colored the Bees in Foxglove image with Copics, in a vintage style, thinking it would be a nice contrast to have lavender colored blooms with the yellow/black bumblebees.  The coordinating Foxglove sentiment was printed onto Vellum (PTI).  I colored the background with a mixture of grays and skin tones, although it's hard to see in the photo.  Irl it looks really aged and vintage.

That about sums up my project for today.  Check out what these gals have to share and be prepared to have your minds blown because they all have serious skills!!
