Inspired by the Enchanted Garden!

Hello folks and happy Friday! If you live here in the States, I sure hope you are having a festive and fun holiday weekend! I have something fun to share with you all today! It's a new month, which means a whole new crop of Creative Confetti Challenges  and the one Power Poppy just kicked off last Tuesday is about as fun and easy as it gets! Seen as Power Poppy had six days of sneaky peeks for Power Poppy's new Enchanted Garden release, the challenge was to take a hop through release week, visit the designers and use one of their cards or techniques to inspire you! And so, that's just what I did!

For my creation, I was really WOWed by Kelly Griglione's clean and classy design HERE. While she inked up her creation in one color and then masked, leaving a space for a sentiment, I chose to be inspired differently by her card. I loved the void she used for the sentiment and so I decided to let that be my starting point. I used painters tape to mask off a section before stamping my Stong and Beautiful stamp over top in black ink. I should say, before I stamped, I took a super fine Copic black multi-liner pen and traced the edges of the painter's tape to create that fine line. I love the look! Also, I originally stamped the floral on top too but after coloring one side, I thought it might get overwhelming since I wanted to add that cute little hummingbird from Power Poppy's new Floribunda set. So, I cut off the top and then added a bit of decorative paper behind instead! I really like the results. I used Copics to color and honestly used too many to list -- just grabbing them as I went along!

Here's a closeup for you!

And that, my friends is it! I just matted it all up, fussy cut the hummingbird and lifted the little guy up with foam tape and... ta da! Done! I hope you get your fingers inky and join me! Just take a trip through release week, be inspired when creating and then link up your creation HERE! Each entry is a chance at winning a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop! Woo Hoo!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
