Shabby Chic Ranunculus ~ Power Poppy




http://powerpoppy.blogspot.com/2015/08/a-little-shabby-little-chic.html
Hello creative friends!  It's Friday already, and that means it's time for some Power Poppy inspiration.  Cindy challenged everyone, last week, to make something "Shabby Chic".  So of course I knew I'd have to play along.  Although I love working with different styles, I tend to gravitate that direction quite a bit.  I also hadn't had a chance to work the the newest digi release called Ranunculus.  Aren't they exquisite?  I used some rose, coral and yellow hues to give them a vintage feel.  I didn't realize that this similar color palette was used by the super sweet and talented Kathy Jones too.  *sigh*  Subconsciously I guess I was channeling Kathy.  Not a bad artist to channel though...that's for sure.  :)


I colored the image with Copics, distressed all the edges and added a bit of sewing to give it a good vintage feel.

That's it for my project today.  Be sure to check out what the following Bloom Brigaders have to share:

Copics:   Flowers: Rose color ~ R85, R83, R81 Coral color ~ R32, R30 Yellow color ~ Y28, Y23, Y02 Flower center ~ T7, T5, T3, T0, YG07 Leaves: YG95, G85, YG03 Background: W6, W4, W2, W0  I went over the flowers and leaves randomly with E31 to add a warm vintage feel to them.

Thanks for dropping by!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!

Happy Stamping!
