Be Yourself

We’re back this week with another installment of our fun challenge at Power Poppy!  All of June we’ll be looking for Power Poppy Peeps!  It’s an “anything goes” challenge with Power Poppy sets (digi or polymer) and we pick our favourites of the week, then at the end of the month those names go in a hat and we’ll have winner’s who can then select from the Power Poppy Store!  

This week I pulled out our Sassy Succulents set for some colouring fun.  

I love the smaller potted succulents that Marcy incorporated in this set.  You can use them individually or as I have here, masked and placed together in an arrangement.  I wanted a bluey-green look to the design to pair with these papers (Fancy Pants - Down by the Shore).  They’re all stamped in Memento Olive Grove to tone down the colour a little and blend in with the bluey/green feel.   the tiniest little succulent is popped up.  

A pretty Spellbinder’s Die, some seam binding, a wee bit of washi tape, some Candi accents and it’s done.  I used this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch.  

Below are the Copics I used.  I think I forgot to put in my BG11, and BG0000 for the photo but I know I used them as well.  

Now you can pop on over to see what the Bloom Brigade playing today has up their creative sleeves, and then be sure to jump in on this week’s Power Poppy Peeps Anything Goes Challenge!  Be sure to check out the post for the official rules.

Christine, beautiful card! I love your blues and greens together, and your coloring is fabulous! Thank you for your inspiration.

I just love these little cuties all grouped together like this. They do make for a fun and colorful card. I never would have thought of succulents for a stamp set, but leave it to Marcy, huh? Your colors are very cool and summery and I'm always enthralled by your coloring. Way fabulous, Christine!
