Graceful Still Life ~ Power Poppy

 

Happy Friday!!  I don't know about you, but I am so ready for the weekend!!  Life has been crazy!!  
But first, I'd like to share today's card with you right now.  I just adore this little digital vignette, called Graceful Still Life, that Marcella released on the 15th of this month.  Isn't it just super charming!!  I love how she combined the Roses and Dogwoods with little extras like the sweet hat and charming stack of books.  And don't you just love that darling little pitcher as the vase?

I did a bit of editing in Photoshop to get the sentiment along the bottom.  It's a much larger sentiment, and I only wanted to include the last little line on the front of my card.  So I cropped out all the rest and added it underneath the image.

Everything is colored with Copics, and the frame was diecut using Spellbinders' Labels 47 Decorative Elements die.  I randomly covered it with Versamark ink, and added some Shabby White Embossing Enamel to vintage it up a bit.  I also antiqued it up a bit by ink distressing inside the frame, while it was still inside the die, using Ranger's Antique Linen Distress Ink.



I'm showing a close-up so you can see the Embossing enamel a bit better.  It has some gold and glitter in it, so the shimmer in real life is striking.  If you click on the photo, it shows even a bit more.

That's it for me today.  There's still time to participate in the this month's No-Line Coloring Power and Spark Challenge.  If you participate, you'll be entered to win a free clear or 3 digital stamp sets.  It's definitely worth a try.
