Sunset Sway ~ Power Poppy




Happy Friday!!  I'm back with some more Power Poppy inspiration for you all, and I had some fun with this new digital image called Sunset Sway.  I thought it would be a great idea to color the background like a sunrise since a sunrise and sunset were included in the sentiment.  While I was picking colors for the flowers, I thought, why not include the colors of the rainbow.  So, I have red Anemones, orange and yellow in the background, green leaves, a blue butterfly and purple Tulips. I don't normally work with so many brights, but I truly enjoyed making this (for me) bold card.  

Since my colors were so bold, I decided to keep the background simple with a peach mat, and a white diecut frame called English Picnic by Tonic.  I used Photoshop to add the sentiment directly with the image, printed it out twice and cut out each bloom and the butterfly.  I then burnished them and popped them up onto the image for some extra dimension.

Lastly, I added some Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops (Nuvo) to the diecut centers of the little flowers in the frame.

Here's a close-up angle so you can see the dimension a bit better.


That about sums up my project for today.  For some more incredible inspiration, check out the following Bloom Brigade Blogs:
