Hello Friends! Today we’ve got a brand new challenge at Power Poppy that’s going to be another good stretch for you. Ally’s our hostess and here’s what she had to say about the challenge:
This month I want you pull out a coloring medium that you don't use that often. So if you tend to use Copic Markers for instance, pull out your water color paints or your colored pencils instead! Let's see you use up some of those not-so-used mediums this month.
That’s a great challenge for me as I tend to grab my Copics most. Today I pulled out my prismacolor pencils and this BRAND NEW beauty, Magnolia Sunshine!
Marcy has a brand new digi today that honours her mom’s favourite flowers - Magnolias and Daffodils. As some of you may know, Marcy’s mom is going through some health challenges so we want to give her all the love, encouragement, prayers and sunshine we can, so I made this especially sunshiney.
Did you see the fun tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers the other day on how to make a Pleated Skirt Fold? I thought it was an ingenious way of folding paper in a simple way that creates a neat focal point. So, I found some sunshiney paper in my stash (SU) and pleated the lower section.
The image is just so pretty! Here’s what this pretty digi looks like below:
Here is a closer look at the colouring. Finishing details include sparkly ribbon, enamel dots and baker’s twine.
Here’s also a closer look a the pleated fold too. Its nice because you can show off both sides of a double sided paper.
And we’re also jumping in with the 30 Day Coloring Challenge at the Daily Marker with this one too! It’s a good encouragement to color a few minutes every day!
So, now we’d like to invite YOU to jump in with us at Power Poppy and pull out some of your unused colouring mediums to colour with us this month. Enter at the Power Poppy Blog and you could win a Power Poppy set of your choice!
Here’s the Bloomies and Instant Gardeners playing along today....
