Rainbow Bouquet

Hey everyone!  It’s just going to be a quick post today!

I have been inspired by the rainbow craze lately so I took it to one of the brand new gorgeous Power Poppy bouquets, “Always Here”.

I chose to use Copic Markers to both colour my image and also air brush my die cut back ground.  Here are all the Copic Markers I used…

Don’t forget to participate in our monthly Power & Spark challenge.  It’s all about black & white plus one other colour!  For more challenge details, click HERE.

Plus, take a moment and check out my tutorial on the Power Poppy Blog this week, right HERE.

Hey... and check out what my fellow Bloomie Stacy Morgan has to share with you today!!!

Thanks for dropping by!  I hope all of my American friends have a great long weekend!

Wild & Wonderful Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 3 of the Wild & Wonderful Collection Blog Hop!  If you have just happened upon my blog, you may want to start at the beginning.  Click here to start at the beginning.

This new collection is jam packed with stamps, coordinating dies and even 4 brand new ink colors!!  Woohoo!

I had a ball creating with all these amazing products.  And here a few of my creations…

Butterfly Tri-Fold
This card features the ornate Scroll Butterfly Die and the In Flight Butterfly Die.  It’s accentuated with the blooms from the A Note of Thanks stamp collection.

Purple & Mint Thanks
This multi-die card features the new Wonderful Wildflowers stamps and their coordinating dies, Wonderful Wildflowers Dies.  The back ground was made using the Mint To Be ink and the graphic new BFF Background stamp.

You Are Simply Bouquet
This sunny, cheerful card also features the Wonderful Wildflowers stamps & dies plus a mix of the Focus on the Good greenery & their coordinating dies. And did you notice those scrolls… yup… those are just the details of the Scroll Butterfly Die cut and scribbled on with a white gel pen!

Thank You Rainbow
And my final card today features ONLY the four new ink colors…. yup… I only used All That Jazz, Grape Crush, Be Mine and Limonchello inks!  If you were wanted to try Catherine Pooler Designs inks for the first time, I would highly recommend these four!!!  You can buy them all at once too: they’re called the Carnivale Ink Bundle.
