Hop Along with Power Poppy

I hope you have enjoyed our three days of Power Poppy July release creations.  Now join me and the rest of the Bloom Brigade for one fun journey to see some more creations for this month's digital release.  Happy hopping everyone!

I truly had some fun with our fabulous digital stamp set, Countryside Bouquet.

I began by taking my image into Photoshop and I tucked a piece of black and white checker patterned behind my bouquet.  I carefully removed all of the white space to reveal all of the open spaces between the stems and blooms to allow the pattern to show.  Then I played with the opacity and toned it down to a very subtle back ground.

Once I printed my image on my laser printer, I began my colouring my back ground using the shades of Copic Toner Gray.  I darkened the center and made it lightened as you got closer to the patterns edges.  This made my bouquet pop!

One final step was to colour, cut and shape my poppies.  I chose just the poppies to paper piece to make just one level of dimension appear.  I glued the shaped pieces on using a 3D glue to allow them to hold their curves.

I hope you enjoy your blog hopping today.  All of our amazing digital stamp sets are on sale NOW in the Power Poppy Store!  Make sure you go and grab them so you play along with all of our challenges!

Have a gander at what the rest of the Bloom Brigaders have done with these amazing digital release images…
