Power Poppy: Introducing… Bees in Foxglove!

It’s the 15th of the month and normally only the Power Poppy Instant Gardners (the digital Design Team) would be sharing their stunning new digi creations today but since today falls on a Friday, both the Instant Gardners and the Bloom Brigade are teaming up to showcase the newest digital beauty!

Introducing… Bees in Foxglove!

Our newest addition to the Instant Garden Collection just happens to be one that's a tall beauty that's not only colourful but a dramatic beauty. Our newest set, Bees in Foxglove, features three lush stalks of Foxglove (Digitalis) with three plump bumble bees buzzing around doing their bumblebee thing! Add in a cheery all occasion sentiment and you have one stunning set that is ready to download, print, color and create with!

Here’s what I created to share with you today…
I chose to keep my card super simple and concentrate your attention on the gorgeous detailing of this amazing botanical.  Don’t you just love those fuzzy bees?  I added a cute little sentiment to my tag from the Simply Camellias stamp set.

Here’s a close up of some of the details on the inside of the large flowers.  I first coloured my blooms with Copics and then added some white detail around the dark spots of colour on the inside to make the dots pop.

I took inspiration from this gorgeous variety of Foxgloves I found on line.  Aren't they stunning?!?!

Ally, thank you for the heads-up on the exciting news! (I tried to thank you on the SN forum but alas, I'm still without PM capability.) I'm looking forward to trying my hand at working with this beautiful set, but I know I'll never match your mad skills with coloring. Your card is just stunning! You can bet I'll be studying it more closely to see what more I can learn from you. Thanks for sharing your remarkable talent! <3
