A Pop of Pastel!

Hello all and welcome to April! As you know, every first Friday the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade ushers in a new challenge that's designed to add a bit of design power with a splash of creative spark in your craft rooms! So, as we usher in spring, we give you our next challenge hosted by the ever-so-talented Ally Cope!


HOW TO PLAY OUR 'POP OF PASTELS' CHALLENGE: 
"With Spring slowly making away across the land, it reveals the beautiful of so many gorgeous blooms and buds: blooms of soft buttery yellows, light lavender purples and pastel rosy pinks. So for this month's challenge, I want to see you create with a soft, subtle color palette of PASTELS. Let's see those creamy oranges, delicate grassy greens and beautiful soft shades of color on your cards and creations. I was inspired to create a card using the subtle palette of watercolor on my bouquet. I can't wait to see what you create!"  ~ Ally

On to my creation!


I have a bit of a throwback to share today! It's actually one that I created a while back but never shared! While I didn't craft it specifically for this challenge, it kind of fits! Don't worry, I think I'll be using a lot of pastels this month. Spring is in the air afterall, right?

For this spotlight creation, I stamped the Azalea image from Power Poppy on the decorative paper and then again on white card stock. I figured out which portion of the image I wanted in color and then, using a series of circle dies, cut that portion of the image out and colored it up with Copic markers. I added a little BasicGrey decorative paper, some bling and then added the sentiment thanks to a 1" circle punch. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! And that, my friends, is it!

Now it's time to see the beauties crafted by our talented Bloom Brigade. Stop by their blogs, give them some "love", and check out their latest creations!
