Big and Bold Dahlia

Hello friends, it seems like I might come out of my creative slump 😅 since I am posting 2nd day in a streak.
I have used another of my colored images to convert to a card.
This is also a digital stamp from Power Poppy, and I have used Prismacolor pencils to color it, this flower had taken me a very long to color, have a look at the process picture below, I had added layer and layers of color here, one of the lengthiest colorings i have done.

I had fussy cut it all, but the bottom most petal tip is still connected to the sentiment base. 
I created a background using some dark shades of inks, you can see the inks I have used in the picture below. I also used a bubble stencil to create a faded bokeh effect.
I did add a gold glitter strip tot he sentiment before adding it with the foam adhesive, a few jewels around the sentiment to finish it off.

Linking this with:

Inspired by the word - blossom

There wouldn't be a flower I wouldn't wish to grow in my garden, if I have one. I love flowers by all means.

 Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind feedback. Have a great day!


  1. I don't know what to say- its just spectacular! I can see from the pics that the process would have taken so long! But it must have been fun, and I can see that the effort has paid off with the card! Loving the highlighting that you've done on the card base too.
