I coloured Poppy up with my copics. Her basque is coloured with sakura stardust pens, and her wings, once coloured, were glittered with glamour dust. I fussy cut her out because I wanted to make her wings dimensional, and then stuck her back on some white paper, curling her wings up for that dimension. They also catch the light so much better than laying flat!
The papers are from two different months of a craft magazine, as it struck me that they went very well together when I was removing them from the centre of the magazines. Fancy die cut, Spellbinders, is cut from some Core’dinations paper and that has also been used as a background mat. I also used some Core’dinations in red to make a branch for the flowers and a decorative top piece, as I wanted to tone in with the background paper colours more.
The flowers are stamped and cut out of vellum with Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies, and then coloured with the same colours I used on the image. I did curl the flowers up a little, but I may have flattened them out slightly when I pushed the brads into the centres.
