Hello folks! I hope you've enjoyed this month's Instant Garden escapades so far over at Power Poppy! Today, I'm here to usher in even more fun! I've got a little challenge for you and it's all about mixing it up, getting inspired and letting your creativity take you in new directions!
THE CHALLENGE: Turn this album cover into a card -- in any way that it inspires you. Take the colors, the layout, the style and use it to help you create! Just that simple. This one is open to interpretation! Just be sure to use one of Power Poppy's digital stamps to make your card or creation! You can read up on all the official rules HERE.
On to my creation!
I have to say, this wasn't a 10 minute card, but it wasn't a whole lot more than 20! I started by printing off the Gladioli image and then really went to town adding some background color with the help of some background stamps! I used a mix of inks. One is Heavenly Blue (a discontinued ink from Close To My Heart), Lavender and Bermuda Blue Vivid! inks. Afterward, I took a few Copic markers ( BG000 and BG0000 with BV00, BV02 and BV23) and just "flicked" on some color. I didn't even blend -- just created messy strokes until I added a soft bit of color!
From there, the rest is matting it up! The sentiment is from the Good Thinking: Renewal stamp set. I used a Stampin' Up brad that I embellished with a rhinestone, added some paper piercing and an embossed background (Cuttlebug Textile Texture) and.... ta da!
Here's a close up!
And that, my friends, is it! Need a little inspiration to move and groove with???? Turn up some tunes and head on over to see...
