In 3-2-1!!!!

Is your weekend about to blast off? Do you have any creative pursuits you plan to enjoy and conquer over the next few days? I hope the answer is yes and YES! Since it is the 22nd of the month and we’re getting closer and closer to the end of April, here’s your friendly little cheer to grab three markers and get in on our Power & Spark challenge that is sure to stretch your mind without dictating a huge color palette!

That’s right, all you need to do is pick three markers — ANY KIND of markers — and color up an image, set it nicely on a card and BAM, you’re in the running! You can click HERE for more on the official details and linky for your finished creation. I will tell you, the contest closes on the 30th and if you play along and WIN, you get your pick of a Power Poppy stamp set! Woot Woot! 

Man, oh man, have the entries for this challenge been BEE-YOU-TEEEE-FULL! I might get a little carried away here, so watch out. I just had my afternoon cuppa joe writing this so, I am “under the influence!” :-) 

This first creation from Melody Rupple, is in a word, WOW! She nailed the challenge and made this digital stamp set Everything’s Rosy come alive in soft shades of pink, blue and green! Don’t you love the stitched border, sequin sparkle and fancy die-cut edge? It’s a keeper my friends! It’s a keeper!

This next card I love because of the incredible variation of color that delivered stunning results. Cristina Muñiz across the pond in Spain is the artiste! She handpicked her three colors and I think she dressed these Hellebores up in a way that’s FULL of design power and creative spark! What wonderful brushstrokes, and the way she brought the blue from the water cup into the petals and the flower centers, what ingenuity.

This last card that I am sharing today is by Gail Meinen and you really have to look to guess which three colors she picked up. I see the yellow and orange but.. hot pink? Yes, sweet stamping friends, she did it with smashing success using Power Poppy's Sunflower Power digital stamp set!

So, join in the fun and good luck to you! Now it's time to turn things over to a duo of Bloomies who whipped up some colorful fun for you all this week! Stop by and say "hey" to these lovelies!

Thanks for stopping by and spending a wee bit of your day with us! We hope nothing but sunshine is headed your way! Be sure to tune back RIGHT HERE on Monday on the Power Poppy Blog for a BIG & JUICY reveal. We have not one, but TWO digital stamp sets to tickle your creative taste buds! One is just about as sweet as they come, another stretches us to live and love sharing beauty on the canvas of life!

See you back here then!
