Welcome to Day 2 of our December Digi Releases from Power Poppy! Today's gorgeous flower we’re showing off to you is one I wasn’t familiar with - being from way up north...but it’s beauty is amazing. I think a trip down south is in order to check them out, don’t you think? I also know you will really appreciate it’s beauty. Camellias is a gorgeous design (available right now!) illustrated by Marcella and here’s what she has to say about it:
"Jewels of the winter greenhouse, stars of Southern gardens, and the state flower of Alabama, Camellias are a symbol of passion, desire and refinement. I was inspired by the Camellias from the gorgeous collection at the Linnean House at the Missouri Botanical Garden."
I chose to go a little artsy with this design..
I found a picture online with peach camellias and was thinking how pretty peach and grey are together so I decided to give this one the feeling of a tinted photo. all of the leaves, and smaller blossoms are coloured in Cool Greys. Then a touch of colour is added to those blooms with an R11 marker. The largest blossoms I’ve given that full-on peach colour. I think it’s a great effect.
I’ve added the sentiment on light grey card stock. What I love about digis is being able to resize them to whatever works with your design, so I shrunk the digi sentiment with the set down so it would fit perfectly in that little circle. Sequins and sewing finish it off.
Here’s the Copics I used to achieve the tonal colours.
And now these wonderful women have more to show off with this amazing set.
