Dahlia Framed ~ Power Poppy
Hello my dear creative friends!!!  Have you been enjoying the previews of the new Power Poppy clear stamp sets?  Oh my how I've loved seeing what the DT is doing with all these new images.  These gals are so super creative and talented!!  

Today we are featuring an incredible set called Dahlia XL And believe me...this baby is huge!  In an incredible way!  It's about 5"x5".  You can use the whole image, or just parts of it so really, you can make your project whatever size you want.

I really stepped outside of my box this time.  I decided to try my hand at "no-line" coloring for only the second time (If you don't count the Copic Coloring class I took awhile back).  I started by stamping the image with Tattered Rose Ranger Distress Ink, and colored it with my copics.  I really struggle with wanting to blend every line seamlessly, so this time, I let some boldness show through.  And I have to say, the more I look at it, the more I like it.  It's still growing on me though.

Below is a close-up so you can see the background a bit better.  IRL it's much more visible.  I just colored it with T1, and T0 before coloring the Dahlia, and used an old rag with some blending solution on it.

After coloring the Dahlia, I burnished it for some texture.  It's way more obvious in person.  

Below is a photo of where I have the image displayed.  I like the rustic feel of it.

Once again, that's it for my post today.  If you haven't already, check out the following Bloom Brigaders' blogs.  You won't want to miss a stop, let me tell ya!!

Girlfriend, you did such a beautiful job with this frame, not only is your no-line colouring amazing, but with the burlap and deep brown thick wood frame, it really takes on that rustic homey feel. Gorgeous work Tosh!
