Power Poppy, Instant Garden Digital Stamp Release, Bees in Foxglove, May 2015

As soon as I saw the image, I found so many beautiful photos of foxglove and was truly surprised at the variety of colors. And so many of the photos showed the little "bee bottoms" too (they sure love the nectar)! This image was my inspiration - her name is "Digitalis Polkadot Polly Hybrida" (how cute, eh?).


Digitalis Polkadot Polly Hybrida - Foxglove

So say hello to my "Polly." I used the entire digital image and colored her a sort of peachy/apricot color with touches of yellow inside her cup. A touch of Wink of Stella is on the bee wings. I wanted this image to take "front stage" on my card and used an oval die with a mat and (of course) paper-pierced just inside the matted oval. For some texture, I used a large embossing folder and matted it as well, adhered my oval, and then added a sheer ribbon that I dyed with two Copic markers to match (adding a little "for you" sentiment from Good Thinking: Renewal...along with a dyed pearl). I adhered that to the card base with red tape, and it was done!

I love this color, Cheryl! How beautiful your coloring is, and the simplicity of the card design brings out the beauty of the image all the more. Wonderful on the embossed panel and the perfect shade of peachy-apricot for matting. A stunner!

Wow what a fab card my precious friend. Amazing and beautiful and wonderfully done. I love foxgloves but just can't seem to grow them in my garden. Guess it's all the clay I have. I love the ribbon with the little tag and the eb background all work so well together.
It is our long weekend here in Canada...I have 30 bags of mulch waiting for me in the garden!
Wish me luck.
