Pop Goes The World Challenge

We have something new brewing over at Power Poppy...Be inspired by the beauty of this photo and use at least three out of the four colors we've highlighted. Choose from shades of purple or orange or yellow or even a nice grassy green in your creation! Also, you have to use one of Power Poppy's digital stamps to be in the running! So choose from Gerbera Daisies, Tulips, Gladioli or Peonies! 

This week over at Power Poppy we are ushering in our very first challenge.  How exciting is that?  Check out the details over on the Power Poppy Blog:   POWER POPPY MAY CHALLENGE

The challenge is a color challenge using: Purple, Green, Orange and Yellow.  I chose Power Poppies Digital Tulips image available here:  Tulips.
I wanted to keep my card clean and simple.  There is a huge trend towards CAS cards.  I love that.  So I focused more on my coloring.  Plus it is going to be sent across the pond and that makes the postage so much cheaper.  My friendly postal guy told me the other day I really should think about mailing flatter envies.  He just doesn't get it..hehe.  Every card needs a little bling.  

The Copic markers I used are as follows:
Y000, Y13, Y15, YR09, YR15
Leaves:  YG03, YG13, YG17
Tulips:  BV000, BV08, BV13, 

Below is a list of the Bloom Brigade that are giving you some examples to drool over:

  5. Very pretty, beautiful coloring on the tulips also.

  6. Oh, so beautiful, Dawn! Just love these colors with exquisite coloring as always! And that gingham ribbon...LOVE it!! Hugs!

  7. Beautiful purple tulips! It's so hard to keep a card flat and still interesting and pretty. I have those sparklers, but have never used them. They are definitely lumpy, but soooooo pretty! No, your postal carrier just doesn't understand. Your friends are worth the postage! Gorgeous card, Dawn!

  8. This is just beautifully done, Dawn! Your coloring is beautiful & the tulips just look real! Gorgeous card!

  9. Everyone's colouring of these images is amazing and this is no exception. Beautiful card.

  10. Love the rich purple with your splash of yellow in the center of your gorgeous blooms Dawn!! Gorgeous!

  11. Beautiful, you know I like CAS. Yes your coloring rocks and the CAS style really draws it out even more. your postman doesn't get it, I agree. ha ha!

  12. I love your card, Dawn!! So pretty and such depth of color! The CAS is my favorite style...both on home decor, cards, my own clothes are that way too...hehe. I noticed you had a sewing blog but there weren't any posts...that's a good idea!

  13. So beautiful Dawn. The purples are so rich. Pretty design too. Hugs!

  14. I have recently decorated the bedroom in my house which my mum uses when she comes to stay in purple frilly poppies just like these beautifully coloured blooms on your lovely card! Hugs, Lesley

  15. Did I write "poppies"? I meant tulips of course if I did! And if I wrote "tulips" then I think the sun is getting to me! Hugs, Lesley
