Created to Create and Juicy Strawberries ~ Power Poppy
Hello friends!!  Today is a big day!!  Power Poppy is releasing 2 new digital sets!!  That's right...2!!!  And they are both, as usual, incredible.  For my first project, I used the new Created to Create set for my base.  Marcy has designed this beautiful collage with a blank page, and with a beautifully written sentiment.  I chose to use the blank page and add a digital sentiment from the set Gerbera Daisies.  I wanted to make my page appear as a mixed-media journal page.  To do that, I took two Copic markers and blended them:  B000 and YG01.  I then stamped two "grunge" type images from the Clear Stamps set Move the Soul, using Whisper White (SU!) and Turquoise Gem (VersaMagic).  The page, paint tube and paint brush are popped up with dimensional tape, and the entire image was burnished to give it more depth and texture.  Lastly I added a library clip to the corner, and a few Enamel Dots (Prima and MME).

Below is a profile so you can see the dimension better.
Marcy is also releasing a beautiful strawberry image called Juicy Strawberries.  I just love the sentiments she included with this digital set, and thought I should include both.  So, I added the "Sweet Friend" one to the outside, and included the "squooshy hug" one on the inside.  Everything is colored with Copics, and I used a Kirarina Wink Gold pen for the Strawberry seeds.

I thought Spellbinders' Decorative Curved Square die would be a beautiful frame for the this image.  And framed the inside sentiment using Spellbinders' Curved Squares.

That's it for today's projects.  Be sure and head on over to the Power Poppy Blog for a list of all the Bloom Brigaders and Instant Gardeners with inspiration today.

Oh my, Tosh, you've made two amazingly gorgeous cards with the new digis, and they are both stunning! I love the fun interpretation with the new IG image, and how clever to use the "grunge" stamps. What a great background. And the strawberry card is so sweet with the special die - wow! It's delicate and has such pop! I love the black matting, and your coloring is outstanding! Love how you finished off the inside with the great sentiment! Love both cards and sending your squooshy hugs, my friend!
