I've just noticed the challenge at Power Poppy Stamps for August calls for inspiration from home - so this is what I came up with!
I took inspiration from this subtle photo print, which hangs in the corner of our dining area. It was given to me one Christmas by my son and daughter-in-law - I love its clean style and so I knew straight away what Power Poppy stamp I could use - the digi stamp Kindness.
I am fairly new to customising digi stamps but I was thrilled that I was able to move one bloom closer to the other without cutting off a corner! I didn't manage to put one in front of the other, but I think I could next time - baby steps! I did however bring the sentiment up over one flower! Anyway, I'm very happy with how this first attempt turned out and will experiment further to see what magic I can do. I have been a fan of Power Poppy for some time, and always enjoy colouring Marcella's images - they are beautiful.
I've grabbed a little time for myself to join in the challenge over at the Flower Challenge, where the theme is 'A Special Occasion'.
The special occasion was a wedding for a friend's grand-daughter, and inside the card I added the names of the happy couple.
Stamp set and die bundle used: Beautiful Bouquet by Stampin' Up!
Platinum embossing powder on sentiment and wrap
Flower die cuts from watercolour card and coloured with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers
Card: Whisper White by Stampin' Up!, plus textured card from my stash
Thanks for taking a look - hope you like it! This bundle has been my favourite purchase this year!

From the moodboard, I was inspired by the wintry tree in the top left and the keyboard letters, and chose to make an early Christmas card in white tones, but with touches of pink and blue as in the inspi…
