Today some of the Bloom Brigade and also the Instant Gardners are going to be sharing their newest creations using the super delicious… “Apples in Season” digital stamp set (plus a few other amazing stamp sets)!
Not only do we have a new digi for you today but we’re also beginning our newest monthly challenge for August, the Power & Spark Challenge. This month’s challenge is all about CASEing! All you need to do is pick a Power Poppy creation from somewhere in blog land – can be by ANY designer at all and be inspired by it, creating your own spin on the original design. For more information and the rules for this challenge, you can visit the Power Poppy Blog.
What’s CASEing you say? It’s the acronym for: Copy And Steal Everything! But in our case, we are calling it the Copy, Steal & Inspire Challenge!
For my card I decided to CASE my fellow Bloom Brigader, Miss Katie Sims! I just love her vintage style so I chose THIS CARD to Copy, Steal & be Inspired by!
I chose to copy & steal her basic card design and then go from there. Katie used the very masculine “Olive & Oak” digital stamp to feature on her card so I traded it up for our lovely new “Apples in Season” digital image.
Copics used: E81, E37, R02, R12, R46, G00, YG23, YG21, YG17, YG97
For my sentiment, I chose to use pieces from two clear stamp sets; “Simply Camellias” and one of newest releases, “Nice Things to Say”.
I chose to colour in my image completely using Copic Markers unlike Katie who just spotlighted coloured acorns and olives. A little bit of shimmer makes this delightful fruit stand right out…
Now before you go, make sure you check out the rest of my fellow Power Poppy designer’s blogs today for some amazing inspiration! Have fun…
