New Birthday present, albeit early.. Power Poppy's Potted Primrose come take a look!
Power Poppy Potted Primroses
Oh it's so hard to pick just one stamp set when you're looking through the Power Poppy Shop! But this little cutie is just one I had to have right away so I'm calling it an early Birthday gift!
I must say I don't have good luck with growing primroses. They come potted and already blossomed at the grocery store, I bring them to the kitchen counter and watch them expire immediately! The blossoms dehydrate and the leaves turn yellow then brown. It's not like I don't give it water! I'll plant it outside to see if it comes up in the spring next year, maybe they're happier outside in the dirt!
I colored the large Primrose stamp with Copic Markers. A close look above you'll see where I dropped a marker right out of my hand while removing the cap. Grr! So I ended up paper snipping the image to apply to my card but plenty happy with that look too.
Squee! Just look at this cute little plant! When Marcella makes a stamp it just puts a smile to my face her botanical images are the best! Rather than stamp this image in black and white for the inside panel I opted to give it some color. I couldn't resist, I just want to stamp these little plants onto everything now! :)
I can't wait to color more Primroses! At least this way I can look at them in bloom longer than on my kitchen counter! For those that like to keep track of color charts I'll jot down the recipe below. Thanks for stopping by!
