Creative + Curious Big Sexy M-Powering Poppy ~ Power Poppy
Okay...It is day 4 of Power Poppy's Creative + Curious Sneak Peeks, and there is still SO...MUCH...TO...SEE!!!  It's almost crazy how much new stuff Marcella has come up with.  Well, today I went a little crazy with my project too.  I'm featuring a new sentiment set called M-Powering Words, that I combined with two previously previewed sets:  Poppy XL and Big Sexy Leaves

I wanted to step out of my box (!?!?!?), and do a little mixed media.  I started by diecutting a tag shape out of watercolor paper, and then I stamped the Poppy XL with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink offset a bit.  I then created a masked and covered the entire flower.  I then stamped the M-Powering Words sentiment with Tuxedo Black and covered it with with Molotow Art Masking Liquid.  There's a learning curve with this stuff I think, because I had a hard time removing it, so I'm going to do some more research on the proper drying time, etc.

Anyway, after everything was masked, I sponged on some Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide in and spritzed it with water.   After it dried, I stamped the Big Sexy Leaves Background image with Versamark and embossed it with White embossing powder.  I then peeled off the masks and watercolored the Poppy with some Tombow Markers and a water pen.  The itty-bitty sentiment (from the Poppy XL set was embossed onto black cardstock and added to the end.
