I am once again playing with Power Poppy stamps and joining this month's Embellish It challenge! I love this stamp illustrated by Marcella Hawley called "Heaven and Nature Sing!" It is one of my very favorite images. I have colored it up last year in very traditional colors and made my birds Chickadees. Several of the Power Poppy design team members have inspired me to try the floral in non-traditional colors...so this is where this rich purple comes in. I colored the birds and flowers and holly berries in various shades of the copic violet family...then the background in blue to highlight. I added glaze to the berries to add some sparkle, and a little wink of Stella pen to the flower centers. The roses are Prima roses were smudged with SU's Rich Razzleberry ink. The die cuts are all Spellbinders. Pearls were added for an extra flourish...now I just need to find someone who loves purple to give this to!!
Thanks as always, for stopping in and spending time...your visit is appreciated!
