Power Poppy Peeps Challenge


Welcome back my creative friends!  Once again Friday has snuck up on me, so I have a Power Poppy Peeps Challenge card to share with you.  I used this week's Splitcoastampers' Sketch challenge (SC504) as my inspiration, and added just a bit to it......okay...A LOT to it.  I got a bit carried away this week, but let me tell you, I had THE MOST FUN adding little things here and there.



I absolutely LOVE the Power Poppy Farmer's Market stamp set.  I still have yet to color one more image in it, and I am truly looking forward to it.  Every image is thoroughly delightful.  This week, I chose to color the crate of apples with my Copics.  Now, I realize with all that's "going on" in this card, it's hard to see what I really wanted to focus on, so I've provided a close up, so you can see all the wonderful detail Marcella puts in her images.  It's incredible!




I know, I know...there were no flags or banners in the sketch, but believe it or not, I felt the corner looked a little bare.  What?  It did...truly!!  So I stamped the leafy part (or kale) of one of the images, with white, onto kraft card stock and created a little banner.



I love the detail in the leaves.  Marcy thinks of everything!!

Well, now, that's it for my project today.  I hope you'll have a chance to join us for our Power Poppy Peeps challenge this week.  We truly love seeing what you do with Marcella's designs, and you could be featured on the Power Poppy blog and be entered into a drawing for some more Power Poppy stamps!!  Head on over to the Power Poppy Blog for all the details.

But don't forget to check out what these Bloom Brigade team members have made to inspire this week!
