Feathered Spirits

Hello fellow stamp lovers!  The Bloom Brigade is back again this week to share some fabulous Power Poppy creations and have you play along again!  Will you be the newest Peep of the Week?

This week I chose to keep my card pretty simple.  I chose to play with just ink and stamps.
I started off with a small piece of water colour paper and some Ranger Distress inks; Dusty Concord and Broken China.  I dabbed them randomly on my work surface, spritzed it with only a tiny bit of water and then patted my paper in the inks.  Wow!  I just love how the ink dots layered and blended…

Then I used the darling feather images from the Marcella’s Mixtape Vol. 1 stamp set and some white and light mint green embossing powders to add over top of my inky paper.  I also created my own patterned paper for the back ground and added a sentiment using the Good Thinking: Renewal stamp set too!

Now it's your turn!  Come and play along this week with the Bloom Brigade!  Anything goes for this week's challenge!

All you need to do is use the linky HERE and share a new Power Poppy creation. It’s just that simple! It can be anything -- a card, an altered item, a 3D creation, a set of cards, ANYTHING!

  1. Beautiful way to use these delicate feathers, Ally! Hoping to get one card made for this great challenge! If nothing, it will encourage me to do one at least! :) Hugs!

  2. Yet another creative beauty Ally!! LOVE the bold purple/turquoise color combination in the background with the soft look and feel of the feathers in the foreground!! Beautiful card!!

  3. Always, ALWAYS surprising us with new ways to be creative and filled with happy energy!! Ally, I love how you've given such a floaty feeling with all of these fun layers and watercolors. Di-VINE!

  4. Ooooh, I LOVE the splotchy, splattered, colorful, dreamy, floating feathers background! Not to be outdone, though, the script and feathers background behind it is equally awesome. So very perfectly executed and beautiful, Ally!

  5. A beautiful play of colour Ally! A gorgeous richness!


Thanks for brightening my day. I read each and every comment.
