It's time for another opportunity to be our next Power Poppy Peep of the Week. For details on how you can participate, click HERE.
A few of the Bloom Brigade have some inspiration to share today using whatever stamp set inspired them that week. I chose to use the Play Ball set because I hadn't had an opportunity to color that beautiful baseball collage yet. What a beautifully designed image. Marcy makes it super easy to color with her perfectly placed shadows and highlights. I used a TON of Copics to color the image, and Popped up each layer with dimensional tape. I have 3 layers with just the image. Super fun!
I also created my own wood grained background. I took 5 1 1/2" strips of Kraft card stock and ran my Onyx Black and Smokey Gray Versafine ink pads directly onto the Kraft. I then took my White GK pigment ink pad and ran it over the panels to give a slightly white-washed look. I did the exact same thing to my diecut star. After the panels were inked, I laid them at a diagonal over a 5" square piece of Kraft cardstock, alternating colored panels, and glued them to the piece. Then, just turn it upside down and trim off the excess. It's super quick and easy.
That's it for today's project. For some more inspiration, stop in for a visit at the following Bloom Brigade Blogs:
