Power Poppy "Azaleas".....

Hello again, everyone: Today I made this card using the gorgeous images of Marcella Howley's Power Poppy "Azaleas".  This flowers are just so beautiful and come in a whole array of magnificent colors and orange is one of them. 
I stamped the image on Canson Water Color Paper with Stazon ink and then, colored it with the following Stampin Up! markers.
Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Always Artichoke and Baja Breeze, I used the Aqua Painter to blend the colors, it always works great. I also used a bit of Wink of Stella shimmering ink, I love it!!!
I used the SU Labels Collection dies to cut and frame the image. The base CS is from my stash from Hobby Lobby and the DSP is from My Paper Studio, I love the vintage look of it. The sentiment is from the Azalea's stamp set, I stamped it with SU Pumpkin Pie ink and punched it with the SU 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 punches.
So here is my card, hope the pictures show how beautiful this image is, I'm still learning to take photos of my cards with my new camera.  Lots to learn as I continue on this brand new Journey.
Thank you for visiting.
Maria.

  1. absolutely precious! You know how much I love this set (sadly not in my arsenal just yet!) I just now colored a jar of water and regret I didn't make mine more "watery" like yours! If only we lived closer my friend!
