My English Rose ~ Power Poppy February Release Day




The day has finally arrived!!  Power Poppy's newest release called Grow Everyday!  What an awesome title!  Growing every day is something we can all aspire to do.  

For today's release hop, I decided to use the single rose from the My English Rose set.  Marcella sure knows how to draw her roses!!  I think this baby is exquisite.  I decided to go plum with my color scheme and was really happy with how the image turned out.  However (before I assembled the card), my husband said, "Isn't it a bit dark?  It looks like a death rose.".  Yikes!!  I was going for a vintage feel, so hopefully the diecuts, papers and lace pulled it out of its dark hole.  The "Friends" sentiment is from the Folk Heart set.



The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto X-Press It cs, colored with Copics, and distressed with Antique Linen Distress Inks.

If you haven't already, be sure to visit all the Bloom Brigaders for one last inspirational stop, and then of course, Power Poppy to shop.  :)

Copics:  V99, V95, V91, G28, G24, G20, YG95, YG21

That's it for this release.  I hope you've enjoyed the previews as much as I enjoyed working with these sets!!

Happy Stamping!
