Yes, the name of this Power Poppy digital stamp set is Easy Breezy Coneflowers, but I made them into Black-Eyed Susans by coloring them yellow. I mean, they’re both Rudbeckia and so similar in appearance you could go either way. I love the gorgeous mauve-purple of coneflowers, but I thought by now you’ve probably seen quite a few of those, seeing as how I’m a little late to the party. This digital set was released on August 15th, I believe.
Now, I didn’t think I was going to make such a bright and breezy card when I saw these flowers for the first time. I pictured them in a lush garden setting with lots of green and warm colors and die cuts. . . and then this happened. Sheesh, polka dots and everything. You’ve heard of automatic writing? Well, sometimes I think I have spells of automatic stamping. I’ll blame it on the sentiment: “Hey, friend. Wishing you an easy breezy day.”
I did the coloring with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Drew and colored the rectangle to set off the flowers, and then put the card together – a little stitching, a touch of designer paper, and an embossed card base. A bright and cheerful card to send a bright and cheerful message.
Let’s see who else is stamping today:
Thanks for dropping in! (More stamping below, so please scroll down for a card posted earlier today.) Have an easy breezy day!
