5 Days of Power Poppy Digis?!

Hello, Friends! Happy Friday to ya! There's been something BIG brewing at Power Poppy and now I can finally share! Marcella has been oh so busy at her drawing table and now she is releasing FIVE BRAND NEW digis for us!

The theme of this release is kindness, love, peace, curiosity and meaning. Each of the images were created from Marcella's heart and they all have a special meaning to her. I'm so pleased that she's sharing a bit more of herself with us! I can tell you, you are in for a real treat! The images in this release are simply lovely.

We're getting this party started today with a fabulous FREEBIE called, Kindness is the Way.  This digi features an allover pattern of Gerbera Daisies in black and no-line versions. Then you also get two versions of the background with the phrase "Kindness is the Way" superimposed, using lettering that you can color in. Also included is a single Gerbera Daisy in case you want to just keep things simple. This gorgeous floral digi is sized to cover an entire card front!

One of the fun things I love about creating with digital stamps is the versatility. The images can be resized to work with any project I can dream of. For my card share today, I chose to shrink this image to about 3x4inches. It still packs a punch, just in a slightly small size. Take a look...

I printed the image onto smooth white card stock. Then I colored the back ground with a Copic marker. That felt so good, I decided to color the flowers in with Copic markers, too! Then I went back and added a few touches with colored pencils. I printed a second image, fussy cut around the "Kindness is the Way"greeting, then I highlighted the letters with a Copic marker and a Sakura Stardust pen. Next, I mounted it onto the focal panel with foam adhesive. And, although the picture doesn't show it, this card is super sparkly! Each of the flowers has been kissed by a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. I added a few iridescent sequins topped with tiny gems as a finishing touch. I just wanted this card to be riot of color and sparkle. I want the recipient to feel loved, appreciated and happy when the envelope is opened.

So that's it for me today. Please visit the Power Poppy blog to see what the other designers have to share with you. You will not be disappointed! Then check back with me tomorrow. I'll introduce you to another new digi and I'll have a card to share.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Oh, sweet Barb, wasn't it fun coloring the background -- with abandon? Hehe! I love how you've colored these gorgeous Gerbera daisies and love the floating sentiment! Brilliant idea, and this card will definitely deliver a riot of sparkle and color to cheer and delight! I love it! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo

Such awesome and lovely variety to your colours Barb! I know you are a master at pencils, but it’s fun to see you rock the Copics too!
