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!

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