POWER POPPY GIVEAWAY
To kick off the challenge, Power Poppy’s Marcella Hawley has a surprise of epic proportions! She’s giving away Power Poppy’s SOON-TO-BE-UNVEILED MARCH CLEAR STAMP SET RELEASE! That means EIGHT of the freshest, most fun Power Poppy designs to hit the market yet. It's a $144 value! Plus you can enter a friend to win.

Read all the details here!

Winners will be announced on the Power Poppy Blog/Instagram/Facebook pages on Sunday, March 12th, and also over on thedailymarker.com.


For my card I began with some beautiful Canson Cold Press Watercolor Paper and stamped my stunner of a bouquet from the Power Poppy "Daffodils" stamp set multiple times down the edge of my paper.

I proceeded to color up my image using a variety of fun ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers to add pigment to my image.  I used a very detailed water brush to move the color around.  I added more marker where I wanted more concentrated color.

The simple but elegant sentiment comes from the darling "Dream Wedding" stamp set.


ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers make coloring QUICK and EASY.  They're a dream to use!
