Flower Maidens

Ooh, I have a really pretty image to share today from A Day For Daisies! These are from the September Club Kit and all of the new images, especially these maidens are lovely!

The image used here is Flower Maiden 3


I colored up the image with Copic markers and accented the flowers with Stickles.  I shaded around the image with Prisma color pencils and oms.   I also sponged and distressed the panel edges.   The paper is from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss pad.  A simple paper flower and twine bow finish it off. 

I hope you check out these beautiful new images and show us your creations!  Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

Warm Glow

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone is ready for the weekend…after the first full chaotic week of school I know that I need the rest!

As much as I hate to see the summer go…and really wanted to squeeze in one last beach day, I really love the fall!  This is one of my favorite images from the Sunny Harvest set from Power Poppy!


I stamped this with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.  I shaded around the image with a Prismacolor pencil and oms.  I also sponged the edges of the panel with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.

The paper is from the Apple Cider pad by Bo Bunny and I embellished it with a piece a burlap and added a button with some hemp twine.

Please join the Bloom Brigade this week and show us your creations!  Link up your creation HERE and you could win a free stamp set and be honored with a Power Poppy Peep of the Week title!

It’s Bloom Time

Good Friday morning!  We have a bevy of bloomin’ beauties from A Day For Daisies today!  The new September Club Kit is available and the challenge for this week is painterly effects.  The gorgeous flowers in this collection are just perfect for this!


I started by using the same flower twice on the panel, but making the second one smaller and flipping it in the other direction.   I used reinkers to watercolor the flowers and the background.  Once dry I painted over it with a fine glitter paint so give it some subtle sparkle.  I also computer generated the sentiment.    When I finished coloring it I used a micron pen to hand line a border around the image. 

You’re in for a treat when you see what the other ladies created!  Check out their beauties below!

Way to Grow!

Super cute sentiments accompany this great new stamp set by Marcella Hawley by Power Poppy!
I used Farmers Market to create this card.  I stamped the group of veggies and sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.
I cut out the image and mat with Spellbinders dies and sponged the edges of the panel with Wheat ink from a Dew Drop with the Classic Squares Lg die still in place.  The fun patterned paper is from the Crate Paper Farmhouse pad.
So many fun creations to check out today!

Happy Friday morning!  Hope you have fun plans for this Labor Day weekend!  I did…however, we decided to cancel our plans to stay home and get our driveway done.  Not fun, but necessary…and I will most definitely enjoy and larger and level, not to mention nicer place to park my car!
Today A Day For Daisies is showcasing adorable pixies!  I have Tiny Pixie Daisy to share with you today!
I colored this sweet little pixie with Copic markers and added shading around the image with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits.  I sponged the panel edges with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Wheat with the Spellbinders die still in place.    Hard to tell in this photo, but I added a bit of sparkle to each daisy with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen and a drop of Crystal Effects in the center.
Super cute samples can be found on these ladies blogs below!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

I started today with an image from the Countryside Bouquet Deluxe set.
I stamped the cosmo stem on patterned paper from the Pink Paislee pad Butterfly Garden.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  Then I stamped a sentiment under the stem from the Geraniums Take Two stamp set.   I used Prismacolor pencils and oms to shade around the image and sponged around the panel with Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy.   I used multiple flowers and a bit of a lace doily to embellish. 
Lots of beautiful creations to see when you visit these Bloom Brigade ladies below!

Hello and happy Friday!  Today at A Day For Daisies we are revisiting some fun edibles! 
This weeks challenge is to use the inspiration board when creating your project.
Full of fun colors and veggies…very inspiring!
I love coloring up these Fancy Beets! I love eating them too!

I used Copic markers on the image and shaded around it with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  I lightly sponged around the image panel with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.   I computer generated the image and added a strip of patterned paper underneath it.  The paper is from the Basic Grey Up Beat paper pad.  It has little beets on it…or maybe radishes, but oh so cute!
Please join us on the A Day For Daisies blog and play along!
So many adorable edibles to provide even more inspiration below!
