Countryside Bouquet

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Tie One On". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I'm using a new digi stamp for the first time, Countryside Bouquet. I've always admired Power Poppy Stamps but never purchased any, so when this one on my wish list went on sale I had to have it! I have a lot to learn when it comes to using digi stamps so I kept it simple this time. The image was colored with Copics and colored pencils, and I "tied one on" with some linen thread. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy coloring these days? I can just sit and color for hours. I find it so relaxing.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Countryside Bouquet Digi Stamp (Power Poppy), Say it Happy (Technique Tuesday)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Pint Sized Patterns Beachside (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Colored Pencils: Prismacolor
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Femme Frames Dies (Mama Elephant)
Accessories: Linen Thread (Stampin' Up), Enamel Dots (Echo Park)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

I think that Power Poppy flowers are the best. Country bouquet is one of my favorites. You have made it realistic with your talented coloring abilities. Love it!
