Inspire Me Monday: 3 Marker Challenge

Howdy all! Happy Monday to each and everyone of you!  I'm Allison Cope and I'm your hostess for today's Inspire Me Monday!

So if you haven't joined us before, then you'll definitely need to know all about this month's Power & Spark Challenge.  Our hostess, Christine Okken, has challenged us to color an image using only 3 markers... I know!!!!... are you like "how in the world can I color an entire image using only 3 markers or colors!?!?"  For further challenge details, click HERE.  Play along to WIN some Power Poppy stamps of your own!

Well today... I'm going to show ya just how it's done!  And I promise... I had my eyes closed when I chose my markers!!!

I grabbed my gorgeous "Bloomin' Wonderful" stamp set and my Copics and away I went.  Come join me at my desk today...

And here's another quick look at my very simple card, colored with ONLY 3 MARKERS!

Thanks for joining me today!  I sure hope you join the Bloom Brigade and I for this month's super fun challenge!

Oh, Ally, once again, you've really shown us how to take the "fear" out of making a card with just three markers. I got a giggle out of how you too know about where your colors are, so that helped me some. I really should try it! Thanks for another great Inspire Me Monday tute, my friend! Hugs!

Hi Allison! I too, love your card! I love the color scheme and the way you colored it. Truthfully, choosing a color scheme for my own cards is my biggest dilemma when creating cards. I struggle with it. It's amazing how your fingers picked out a good set. Thank you for the inspiration!
