Luminous Bouquet ~ Power Poppy

Hello, hello, hello creative peeps!!  It's FRIDAY!!!!  And that means I get to share my latest Power Poppy creation with you!  I had a super fun time playing with Power Poppy's Digital set called Luminous Bouquet.  It has a stunning Japanese Poppy as its centerpiece and is beautifully enhanced by clusters of Hydrangea petals, Clemanits and Oxalis leaves.

I started by opening a blank page in Photoshop and added the image to the three corners.  But, when I wanted to add the sentiment, it didn't fit right.  So, I thought, why not manipulate it.  It's really easy and if you're interested in knowing how I did it, check out the Power Poppy Blog Sept. 4 for a tutorial.

I've included a closeup below so you can see the sparkle (that I added using a Quickie Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds (SU!) glitter), and the distressed background.  I achieved that by laying the Speckles stencil (Tim Holtz) over the colored portion, and, with a cotton ball, I dabbed Colorless Blending Solution over it. I colored the flowers AFTER distressing my background.

That sums up my project for now.  For some more inspiration, check out the following Bloom Brigade Blogs:
