Lovely Lilacs

Today is the second monthly release of the new digi images department of Power Poppy.  Today the Instant Gardeners are sharing French Lilacs.  One of my most favorite flowers and another gorgeous illustration by Marcella Hawley.


My apologies in advance for the less than stellar photo of my card…I wasn’t using the editing program I normally do and I struggled, lol!

Here it goes…


First I printed the image on watercolor paper, then I colored it with Copic markers.  I used various markers to make dots around the blooms: B0000, B00, B02.  I also painted each of the tiny flowers with Twinkling H20’s to make them shimmer.  Then I spritzed the entire panel with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Jack Frost.

This beautiful new digital stamp is available today in the Power Poppy store.  For inspiration please visit the Instant Gardeners below and prepare to be wowed!

If you are experiencing another blizzard or still trudging through the previous snowfalls, please be careful out there!  Stay warm and have a great day!

This is soooooo pretty Danielle! Not only do I love your stellar coloring but that glimmer mist just is the perfect touch! That ice blue just makes the whole thing pop and the fact that you added those ice blue buttons too just ties it all together. LOVE!

Very fresh and pretty, Danielle! Love the addition of the Twinks and the Glimmer Mist The buttons and twine in the corner are a nice finish. I like using my Copic on watercolor paper, too.

Oh, Danielle, I love your colors and coloring! And what a great idea to use the Glimmer Mist with the H2O's!! That really adds such depth and shimmer! Ooh, it must be far more beautiful IRL!!! And it's perfect with the twine and buttons and perfect matting! Another gorgeous card, sweet friend! And you keep warm and safe too...I'm here in South Florida and sort of out of touch with cold weather! Warm hugs!

This is so beautifully colored, Danielle, and I adore how you softened the overall look by using such a sweet baby shade of blue! Love this!
