Cuppa Buttercups - Power Poppy

I am not even going to make excuses for not posting in a while because it won't change anything.  But rest assured I have been making a LOT of cards and doing a little baking and with fall around the corner the baking and cooking will increase.  I am so ready for fall!   So I am pushing myself to get back on track.  :) And I have some fun things to share that you will hopefully enjoy. So stay tuned!

I have been working hard this summer to try new things and get out of my comfort zone. I continue to work on my "coloring" -whether it be markers, pencils or watercolor - I want to enjoy it more and worry about how perfect it isn't less!  I plan to carve out more time to practice.

I love this buttercup design from Power Poppy. This was a digi image that I  printed on Paper Temptress cryogen card stock that has a lovely sparkle and handles markers so well.

This actually started as a challenge for Power Poppy - to use circles in the design. But I finished it way after the challenge was over. No surprise there!   I am  however glad I did it because it helped me think more creatively and I want to challenge myself more.  I like how easy it was to make the simple coloring have a dotted pattern, and then the glossy accents gave it a nice shimmer.

This shows the dimension created with foam tape and the great cutting job performed
by the Silver Bullet Platinum.

Glittered markers were used to add sparkle to the center of the flowers.  And the sequins added that final touch of interest.  

I love the final result and hope my friend did too!
