Happy Friday my creative friends!!! I'm excited to share a couple of Power Poppy cards with you today.
Power Poppy is buzzing this week!!! First off, Marcella is introducing a new digital image called Magnolia Sunshine!
This bouquet is filled with some of Marcy's mother's favorite flowers, and is a delightful burst of Spring!! I made mine a bit large and diecut a portion of it. It's colored with Copics and sprinkled with a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU!). I used the A2 Divine Eloquence die, as well as Labels 28 (Spellbinders) to frame the image and added some Shabby White Embossing Enamel (Stampendous) to it, as well as some Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh). Stop by the Power Poppy Blog to see what the Instant Gardeners have to share, as well as my fellow Bloomie, Christine!!
Since this is the first Friday of the month, Power Poppy is introducing a new Power and Spark challenge by Ally. She's challenging us to "Switch up our Shades". That means, she wants us to use a different coloring medium than we usually do. Since I tend to go straight for my Copics, I decided to use my Distress Markers for my next card.
I started by stamping the backpack image, from the Well Played set (Power Poppy), with Versamark, onto some watercolor paper. I then embossed it with some Black ep (Ranger) and colored it with my Distress Markers and a water pen. That's it. I went totally monochromatic!
