Rainbow Bouquet

Hey everyone!  It’s just going to be a quick post today!

I have been inspired by the rainbow craze lately so I took it to one of the brand new gorgeous Power Poppy bouquets, “Always Here”.

I chose to use Copic Markers to both colour my image and also air brush my die cut back ground.  Here are all the Copic Markers I used…

Don’t forget to participate in our monthly Power & Spark challenge.  It’s all about black & white plus one other colour!  For more challenge details, click HERE.

Rainbow Bunny Wishes

Happy Saturday everyone!  I’m out with my Scouts today doing our highway clean up day here.  I hope you’re doing great and creating thing fun for National Scrapbooking Day today!

I needed to create a birthday card for one my fellow Scouter friends.  Her birthday is coming up next week so I wanted to get it in the mail this week.

I chose to place along and incorporate the newest Honey Bee StampsBuzzworthy Challenge #5”…
I just love the rainbow of colors!

I used the box from the “Celebration Box”, one of the bunnies from the “Blah Humbunny” and a sentiment from “Swimming By” set to finish off the card. I also made a matching envelope for my birthday girl.

Here’s the list of Copic Markers I used.  I used the same bunny colors to shade my shadows.

Thanks for dropping by!  Hope you have a great weekend!

Black & White Plus a Pop!

TGIF everyone!  I hope you’ve had a great week so far and have fun plans for the weekend.

Today is the first Friday of the month so Power Poppy has a brand new Power & Spark Challenge for you.  This challenge courtesy of Christine Okken, is a lovely one… Black, white and one color… it’s that simple!
For more information on the challenge and how you can win a $50 shopping spree in the Power Poppy Shop.

I chose to use my favorite color… purple.  Like that’s a surprise right?!?!  I pulled out the “Under Glass” stamp set and I stamped the glassware upside down!  Yup… I did it!  Then I used the “Sweet Memories” stamp set and created a simple bouquet of Sweet Peas.

I colored all of my blooms using Copic Markers.  I used a variety of shades of the V family of Copics.

The genius of this stamped image is the use of the little peas from the “Sweet Memories” stamp set.  Instead of using them as peas, I used them as glass beads at the bottom of the glass vase.  Brilliant right?

Now don’t forget to not only come play along but check out what my fellow Bloomies have come to create and share with you today…

Christine Okken -- go here next!
