Howdy all! TGIF… I’m sure glad that it’s Friday! It’s already been a busy week with school starting up and again and trying to work on tutorials and projects – it seems like this week just flew by!
Typically Power Poppy would have already shown sneak peeks of the latest and greatest new release but this this month, we’re holding off so we can bring you an even BIGGER, more fabulous release. Trust me… you’ll wanna save some dough for this one!
Since it’s Friday, we have our newest Peep of the Week challenge on and all you have to do to participate is create and link up a project that contains a Power Poppy image of any kind! If you want some instant gratification, you can purchase some of our glorious digital stamps right here. Join us and you could win some more Power Poppy stamps to add to your stamp collection.
Lately I’ve been dabbling in some water colouring and I am really enjoying it. My Aunt is a water colour artist (or used to be) and I just loved all the cool effects she would get with this subtle, beautiful medium. So today, I’m sharing a simple water coloured card…
Geraniums Take Two" stamp set for my card today. There is just something so happy about Geraniums! These remind me of the ones that my Mom has in her little deck garden at home in Ontario!
You can join me on Monday on the Power Poppy Blog and find out exactly how I achieved this colouring using water colours and maybe even give it a try yourself! It took a lot of patience but I just adore the end result.
Here’s a simple close up for you. You can kind of see the slight embossed details that frame out the Geraniums.
Come and check out what my fellow Bloom Brigaders have to share with you today…
Allison Cope – you are here!
Have a great time checking out everyone's creations this week!
