We’re back for a third day of beautiful new sets from Power Poppy! It’s been so great already hasn’t it? Today’s set really captures a popular gardening trend in our outdoor settings...and indoor ones too! It’s called Sassy Succulents, and it’s fabulous! So many elements for the set will work for CAS designs and more elaborate ones too. I was inspired by a pretty succulent frame that sat on an outside wall like a piece of art. Here’s what I did....
And here was the inspiration photo... so you can see how I was working to get the different succulents to work in that colour pattern and layout. I stamped two different stamps the single succulent and then the hen and chicks combination several times in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colouring them with Copics and then cut them all out carefully.
I laid it all out on a piece I had cut with a lattice die, getting it to where I thought it looked similar to the inspiration.
Then I wanted to give it the look of a framed so I used a wood texture embossing folder to frame it out over the lattice. Accenting with some pearls.
And here is how the inside looks. I think it’s a fun Clean and Simple design. And I loved trying to recreate the inspiration.
Here’s the beautiful Bloom Brigade playing with this set today showing you their creativity...
