New Power Poppy - Oh My!

 Poinsettia and Pomegranates

Hello, and welcome to Power Poppy's New Digi Relase.  This happens on the 5th of each month.  An instant classic for Power Poppy, this showy holiday image is finally available as a digital stamp — ready for you to resize, flip, flop, or edit to fit any project you've dreamt up. Elegant Poinsettia leaves burst from a whorl of pine needles and sprays of baby pomegranates. Whether you take it on at full speed with punchy reds, inject it with pinks and oranges, go for chartreuse and white, or a subtly shimmering metallics, this image is pretty much an instant knockout. Comes with a lighter version for no-line coloring, plus two new sentiments that are not available in the clear stamp version.

I decided to go non-traditional with this time.  I actually started to create a white poinsettia and well, you can see where it ended up.  I finished the rest of the image and left it.  When I came back to it the flower was just a little to soft and didn't have enough "pop off the page" like I wanted.  So in went a few more colors and cast shadows.  There it was, just what I thought of.  

At this point the background was just to white.  So I sicked my C0, 1, 3, and 5 on it and a rag with some blending solution.

Why not add even more depth with dies!  I used a whole pack of square dies to stack the image on the front of the card.  This gave it even more deminsion.  The sentiment is from another Power Poppy Holiday Stamp Set.  Added matching cardstock layers in light grey, blue grey and berry on a 5 1/2 square card base.  Silver half beads and a tiny bow, all done.  Another card that I will keep all to myself, heehee. 

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope I inspired you to step outside the traditional box of colors!  See you again really soon. xo!

Wow! Rhea, this is GORGEOUS! I absolutely love the colors and really love the blue/greens in the petals. And the pomegranates are amazing. Beautifully done with the layered cross-stitched squares and how that really gives it all more dimension...if that's possible! Hugs!
