The Unabashedly Upbeat Challenge

It’s Friday and time for another fun challenge over on the Popper Poppy Blog!

For this week’s challenge we have amazing album cover to inspire you…

Could this album cover be a card? That's the question behind this inspiration challenge! Be inspired by the colors, the layout of the art, the elements -- whatever you like! 

This challenge will run through May 30th at 3PM EST with the winner announced June 2, after the June Release. Use the keyword PPUPBEAT1 when entering it any gallery. The winner of this challenge wins a stamp set of their choice. Hooray!

To link up your card creation for this challenge, click here.

For my challenge example, I chose to take inspiration from the line art and the watercolour texture and the beautiful rich dark purples and ocean blues.  So I layered a whole bunch of our “Tulips” digital stamp image on top of one another, toned down the lines and then printed it out on water colour paper.

Then I proceeded to water colour below my tulips using Ranger Distress Inks in “Feathered Peacock” and “Dusty Concord”.  I also stamped a simple sentiment over top from the “Good Thinking: Renewal” stamp set.  I just love how easy and simple it turned out!

I sure hope that you’ll check out my Bloom Brigade companion, Julie Koerber’s, blog today too for some more fabulous challenge inspired creations!
