Hello creative friends!! I'm finally back to share another Power Poppy card with you! It's featuring a new digital image called Black-Eyed Susan. I took creative liberty and made mine white with a mottled gray background. I started coloring it with yellows, oranges and deep reds and just wasn't feeling it. So white they are. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the stamen tips too. Unfortunately, as always, it doesn't photograph well. I wanted this card to be for my daughter's birthday, so instead of using the sentiments that come with this set (they are fabulous by-the-way), I added a "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Power Poppy Go Wild clear set.
For my card base, I embossed a panel and added some Pure Platinum Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to give it a gilded effect. It has just the right amount of shine in real life.
I colored some black stamens with a Silver Leafing Pen (Krylon), so they would match the flower stamens in the image a bit better, and added it to a seam binding bow.
Copics: Flower ~ BV31, N5, N3, N1 Leaves ~ BG96, BG93, BG90, YG11, Background ~ N7, N3, N3, N1, N0
That's it for me.
