Movin' & Groovin'!

Hello happy stampers! Gosh, do I have so much to share with you today! First, I sure hope life is treating you all well and giving you lots of time to pursue all your crafty endeavors! Although, you and I both know there's never enough time for that!! ;-)

Since it's a brand new month, that means there's a brand new challenge over at the Power Poppy blog! Check it out sweet peeps!

Want your cards to jump, jive, move & groove? Well, you're in luck! For this month's Power & Spark Challenge, Ally Cope is encouraging us all to do just that! Here's what this creative phenom had to say.....
"For this month, we want to see You Move It, Move It! That is, we want to see an element of your card move. It could be anything from a pull-out tag, to some sequins in a shaker card to a fun element that jiggles all on its own! Let's see you Move It!"

I know before the month is over I am definitely going to have to give this challenge a try! You can read up on all the official details HERE!

On to my creation this week!

As you can see, I used Power Poppy's new freebie digital stamp set called I Can Do All Things which just so happens to feature one of my favorite Bible verses of all time! That's why I loved coloring this up so very much. When it comes to the Copic Markers that I used, I sadly didn't write down which ones I specifically used, but I can tell you that I chose a light, medium and dark in each of the color families and went from there. After I was finished, I added some shading thanks to E81, E0000 and R0000. As you can see, I also added a few accents here and there with a white gel pen. Here's a little close up for you!

The rest is just matting it up and adding a few candy dots. Easy peasy lemon squeezie! Now it's time to turn things over to my partners in crafting crime -- the Bloomies -- to see what they've been up to this week!

I love how you’ve used all the designer papers, so much color and interest but it doesn’t take a away from the beauty of the verse!

Stacy Morgan said...

Beautiful coloring and what a powerful scripture. Oh I do like this with the fall colors.

Leslie Miller said...

Amazing how beautiful words can be in more ways than one. I absolutely love how you colored this and made it into a happy design. Beautiful, Julie!

Oh, Julie, what a gorgeous card, and I so love this verse too! It's been a favorite for years. I love the gorgeous fall colors that are perfect for your beautiful DP, and what a beautiful layout with the notebook edge. What beautiful shading and highlights on these letters. Stunning card, sweet friend! Hugs! xoxo
