Power Poppy and today its all about the Narcissus or as we more commonly call them, Daffodils!
This stamp set includes two glorious images including the huge bouquet of multiple Daffodil blooms and some Grape Hyacinths tucked in between them. Simply a stunner of a stamp! You’ll also find six wonderfully useful sentiments written in kinds of delicious fonts. This will be stamp you will use a LOT!
As an artist, I sometimes do a little online research to determine the actual colour of some of the plant and animal life I colour, especially if I want a more realistic looking end result. So when I did a quick search for Daffodils, I came across an extremely WIDE array not only of different coloured Daffodil blooms but also different petals shapes, different layered and frilly petals and everything in between. The floral industry has certain bred some cool and vibrant varieties of these blooms… and so the sky’s the limit as to how you can colour this glorious Daffodil stamp set!
I really wanted to keep the bouquet the focal point of card so I played the rest of the card quite simple. I used some vivid blue Copics to create my air brushed back ground and then coloured in my stamped bouquet using my Derwent Pencils. I’m pretty new at using pencils to colour with so it was a fun experiment to colour in this bouquet for you guys!
Here’s a little close up of Marcy’s gorgeously happy bouquet for you again…
Now… off you go on a little adventure through the remainder of the lovely and talented Bloom Brigade designer blogs...
