Power Poppy Day 3 Peonies




It's day 3 of Power Poppies new stamp release.  This set is called Peonies.  It is so detailed and pretty.  When you see a Peony you know that spring has ushered in it's beauty.  I took my time coloring this image.  It brings back warm memories of my childhood farm.  We had some under our cherry tree.  I would pick them and bring them in to my mom.  Little did I know she spent the rest of the day getting rid of the ants they carried.  Just the smell brings back the memories of those wonderful days. 



I wanted to go with a vintage feel for this card.  I layered the designer paper and cut my Peonies out in a circle.  I added just a little bling and a ribbon.  

I colored my image with Y17, YG03, YG25,  R14, R22, R25, R29. 
This set is available right now as a digital download over at Power Poppy..just click HERE.  Check out the Power Poppy blog for a few words from Marcella herself on her inspiration for this set:  Power Poppy

  6. What a beautiful card! Your coloring is spectacular and I love the way you kept the matting a simple circle. It really shows off the flowers! We had peonies growing up too, and I did the same thing! Mom always made us put the vases in the living room so they were away from the kitchen! I still have a bush in my side yard now but don't bring them in often because of the ants.

  12. Very beautiful...I like the bright happy colors you are using for your Power Poppy florals this week! It is always such a treat to visit you here and see what you are up to...I always leave inspired. I only have one Peony plant and I would love to plant some more...but I have heard that the ants take over so haven't been brave enough to try that! Hugs!
