Power Poppy… POP Goes the World!

Welcome to the first official challenge for Power Poppy!  We’re so glad that you could stop by and have a gander at some new creations by the Bloom Brigade. Come and create along side our wonderful designers.  You can click here for the official challenge rules.

So your challenge is to create with at least THREE of the four colours shown in the photo above: greens, yellows, oranges or purples.  

Isn’t that photo spectacular?! It reminds me of the summer sun setting here on the prairies of the Alberta with the Rocky’s in the distance…. so beautiful!

For my card creation, I chose to actually use all four colours on my card!

For my card I decided to use the glad-orgeous digi stamp, Gladioli.  I first created some cool digital back ground paper using some FREE software called GIMP and then printed out my image and coloured my Gladioli with Copic Markers.  I'll be showing everyone on Monday EXACTLY how I created this on the Power Poppy Blog so stay tuned for that!!!!

Thanks for stopping by! We sure hope you’ll play along with us this week!  Make sure to grab all of our brand new, limited-time-only digital stamps and create along with us for a chance to WIN the entire June release.  Challenge entries will be excepted until May 30th at 3pm EST and a winner will be announced on June 2nd on the Power Poppy BlogTrust me… this is worth it just for the chance to win our entire June release stamp sets!
