Cozy Little Hues to Use!

Hello all and welcome!  For my Power Poppy Parade, I have a happy little color combo that you can use to inspire creativity in your own stamping spaces! If you missed me last Tuesday over on the Power Poppy Hues to Use,  I am sharing a little instant replay for you!

HOW TO PLAY: Playing is super duper simple, just use this color combo above of sassy succulents in one of your creations and then link it up HERE on the Power Poppy Blog! Remember, each and every entry is seen by our eyes which means, if you play along, you might just be chosen to be a future guest hostesses on the Power Poppy Blog for an upcoming Hues to Use post! 


I have to say, with fall here, I had a hankering to use Power Poppy's Get Wool Soon digital stamp set. Can you believe that I.... a knitter.... had never used this little number before? Oh my! What's wrong with me?!?!?!! The good news is that I tend to knit quite a bit in the fall for others, for gifts, so this little digi is going to be used quite a bit!

Do you want to see what I just took off the needles this week? Check it out! This is a slouchy hat done up in a chevron pattern for my son's girlfriend, who loves purple tones. I used the Loops & Threads yarn from Michaels in the color Baroque. I like the way it turned out and the hat is super soft!

And, if you enjoy knitting and want to give this pattern a try, HERE is a link to the free pattern from Plymouth Yarns.

And then, days later, I finished this little number for my son!  You can find that pattern HERE! 

Ok, I digress! For my creation, I printed the Get Wool Soon digital stamp set off and then grabbed my Copic Markers and went to town, using these colors below. I will point out that the E40 and E0000 were used to shade around the bottom of my image. The rest were used to color up the image itself. I did add a little glitter pen to the silver knitting needles as well as the steam above the coffee cup to add just a bit of sparkle!

And, here's a close-up for you!

And, here's a peek on the inside! I did color up portions of the sentiment and accented with a few white dots. See?

And that, my friends, is it! So dig into these hues and let's see what you've got! Once you're done, don't forget to link up your creation below. Get those fingers inky and join us in the fun!
