Pop Goes the World Challenge

Welcome to our first Challenges at Power Poppy!  We’re so excited you joined us for the fun!

This challenge is inspired by this gorgeous sunset photo using purples, oranges, yellows and grass green.  I thought it would be fun to recreate the feel of the sunset with these beautiful Gladioli from our new Instant Garden digi set

After I printed the image on some heavy cream card stock I die cut it out and leaving the die on I sponged these pretty colours on the design.  The colouring is with Copics.  For the card I used a Tim Holtz Stencil to sponge in the background to have the same colour feel as the main image.  

There’s some pretty seam binding to match the colours in the design and I trimmed out just a little of the sentiment for the front of the card (printing in a soft orange colour - so great to do with digis).  And then added a pretty orange beaded gem to accent.  

Here’s a quick look at the inside and the entire sentiment.  I’m going to use it for my Mom for Mother’s Day this weekend. 

So now we’d love if you’d jump in on the Pop Goes the World Challenge!  Grab the digi of your choice from this month’s collection and go have fun!  

Use any three of these colors in your card or creation and link to the Power Poppy Blog. Entries will be accepted until 3PM EST on May 30th. A Winner announced on June 2nd, after the June Release.  And ....the winner wins a set of their choice!   Keyword for online galleries is: PPWORLD1.

The Bloom Brigade has lots of colour inspiration to jumpstart your creativity...

This is beautiful, Christine!! The technicolor sunset backgrounds add such depth!! I love your card!! Hope life is beginning to settle down a bit. My husband just had knee replacement surgery and its is a very long recovery...but our girls are out of the home. Still. It is hard to see your loved one not up to par!!
