Peachy Keen!

Helllllloooooo Stamping Friends! It's the first Friday of the month and.... what does that mean? It means Power Poppy has another way for you to add a little design power and creative spark to your card making and paper crafting projects! It is time for another...... 

HOW TO PLAY: Call this challenge Power & Spark Rewind! Why? Because all you need to do is look at this list below and pick one of your favorite challenges of 2015, rewind, and give it another go! Just that simple! To make it easy for you, here's a listing of our 2015 challenges! Click on the links if you want a sample idea or more info!

On to my creation! I decided to rewind back not too terribly long ago and partake in the challenge I ushered in for October -- the Bits & Pieces challenge! I had this image below all cut out but not colored and thought -- why not now?

After printing the digital stamp Ranunculus, I used the Spellbinders Labels Eight to cut it out and -- just like the challenge -- cut out only a portion of it! From there, I colored it up using Copic Markers and I used YR00, YR01, YR04, YR07 and YR09, G20, G40, G43, shading with BG0000. Afterward, I decided that my image needed a little "something." So, I cued up Kathy Racoosin's tutorial HERE on adding dimension and used one of my Tim Holtz stencils and a Copic Marker YR00 to add a little bit of dimension behind my image. I had never done that before and so, this was a fun little experiment! :-)

The rest is just matting it all up! I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder on a piece of white card stock and then cut out the piece using one of my new double stitched rectangle dies for a little extra bit of pop. I also took a craft knife and cut along one side of my floral so that I could create a slit and stick the sentiment flag through it. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Here's a close up for you! As you can see, I did add a little splash of sequins!

And that, my friends, is it! A peachy keen creation that's ready to send off to a friend! Speaking of friends, the Bloom Brigade is on stand by to share some of their recent creations. As always, hop by, say hi, and get a little creative inspiration while you're there!
