Poppy Power Images

Hello crafty friends-today I want to share two cards with you.  One is for Father's Day which will be here soon and the other is to celebrate Spring and the many blooms that have opened in my yard creating a beautiful frame in front of my windows.

I found both my images over at Poppy Power.  Marcella Hawley is one talented lady and her stamps (rubber and digital) are simply gorgeous and I love coloring them.  

To sweeten things Rhea, of Passionate Paper Creations provides you with a coloring template to get you started.  Her work is fabulous and while I may never reach her level of coloring, I do enjoy trying to repeat her combinations.



Moving forward with my cards, I'll start with the Father's Day card.

As I mentioned earlier the image is from Poppy Power and the title is "Fly Guy".


The paper is from My Mind's Eye but due to the disarray of my paper I can't began to tell you what collection it came from. Orange and brown is one of my favorite combinations for creating masculine cards and this paper was perfect for this card.

I colored my image with copics and I mean I used a slew of them.  I added a few buttons but didn't get the effect I was going for but that's how it goes sometimes when crafting. The inside uses leftover paper from the stack but I haven't taken time to take a photo yet.

I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:

Digi Choosday Crafting- Anything Goes
Everybody Art Challenge -#404 Anything Goes
Cards und More - #185 Father's Day
Cardz 4 Guys - #170 Favorite Color Combo

My second card is all about the color yellow. I love this image and had lots of fun coloring it.


This image is called "Dancing Daffodils" and I colored it with almost 15 different copic markers.

I used the Sizzix pierced ovals to cut out the image and then adhered it to Spellbinders Floral Oval die-cut.  

I used paper from the "Park-bench" collection by Fancy Pants. I thought the yellow with grey/gray accents was perfect for my daffodils.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Whoopsie Daisy - Tic Tac Toe
Crafting from the Heart - #161 ATG
Artistic Inspirations - #180 Flower Theme
Die Cutting Divas - #319 ATG
Create and Makes - #12 ATG/Use Yellow

Well my crafty friends, this is all I have for tonight.


Thanks for stopping by
Sending hugs from Texas
