Dogwood Note


Power Poppy has a fun challenge going on this month to mix and match their stamps on a single card.  I love Power Poppy stamps and I have quite a collection.  I couldn't resist playing along in their challenge this weekend, so I combined a digital flower stamp with a clear stamp sentiment on my card today.

I printed the beautiful Graceful Still Life (dogwood) digi onto hot press watercolor paper.  I made sure I enlarged the digi so this would fill most of my card front and make it easier for me to see where I was coloring.  :-)  I wasn't exactly sure what dogwoods look like in real life, so I Googled some images of dogwood blossoms.  I pulled out my Zig Clean Color markers, laid down a little bit of color, and then spread it out with a wet paintbrush.  After this piece was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from Natural Beauties up near the top.  It sort of looks like it's part of the branches, doesn't it?  :-)

I'm entering this into the Mix and Match challenge over on the Power Poppy blog.  If you have some Power Poppy stamps, why don't you play along with us this month?
