Amazing Chrysanthemum ~ Power Poppy


Hey y'all!!!  Are you ready for some new Power Poppy stamps?!?!?!?!?!?  Well, your wait is almost over.  Marcella has designed 4 new releases that are like no other, as is typical Marcy, and they are unique, and oh, so special as only Marcy can do.  So, get prepared to have your socks blown off, because September 15, all 4 will be available for purchase!!!!  That's only 3 more days people!!!
 
https://powerpoppy.com/products/chrysanthemum-xlToday, we are featuring the absolutely STUNNING stamp set called Chrysanthemum XL.  It consists of a large mum that measures almost 4"x4", along with a couple of leaves, stems and beautifully fonted sentiments.

I stepped out of my Copic comfort zone, and worked with my Zig coloring pens.  I have not had success with these pens until I learned that the right watercolor paper is EVERYTHING!!!  Then, they are easy-peasy!!!  Truly!!!  I was so nervous to try, but the nerves left pretty quickly after seeing the results.  I'm really happy with how this turned out, and though it took awhile to color the background and image (this card is 5"x6 1/2"), it was simple.  I will list the paper and markers that I used at the bottom of this post.

I also added some acrylic paint splatters that I watered down a little bit.

That's it for me today.  But people, there is more inspiration to be had...just check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has to share today:

Christine Okken
Cindy Lawrence

---you are here

Tomorrow we will have a really unique and fun stamp set to share!!  I can't wait to show you the two projects that I came up with.  This set has already come in handy for a couple of the men in my life.  

Thanks for visiting!!
Happy Stamping!!

Tosh, what a gorgeous card! I love the white embossing and your watercoloring. I've not played around as much as I'd like with watercoloring and know that the paper makes a lot of difference. I can see you've mastered it, and I love the background. Stunning card, my friend, and I love it! I really love this mum and see it as a much-have!! Hugs and love! xoxo
