It seems Marcy is thinking about Mr. Tibbs today, and for those of you who love bold, bright colors, today's hues might be a bit of a challenge. We're going grayscale.
Would you like to play along? All you have to do is take your color cues from the photo above (Julie has highlighted 3 of the most prominent colors in the photo), create a project using those colors, and link it below. We'd love to see where your creativity takes you, and by participating, you could be chosen to host one of our Hues to Use challenges. If so, you would get to choose a Power Poppy digi set to play along with.
Are you ready to see my interpretation? I chose to work with the digital set Easy Breezy Coneflowers. Now, I LOVE working with neutrals, but shoot, I just can't resist adding a little pop of color. I might have stepped out of the box a bit, and since this is on the Power Poppy blog itself, I thought I better not make my "pop" very bold, so I just added a subtle purple to the Coneflower center. This is my first time hosting the Hues to Use Challenge, so since I'm a newbie, hopefully, I won't get in too much trouble.
The Easy Breezy Coneflower digital image itself includes two Coneflowers and I wanted a grouping of them. So, I used Photoshop to make a little collage out of the blooms and included one of the sentiments. I then colored the Coneflowers using T2, T1, and T5 along with V17 and V15. The background was made using T0-T6. I soaked a piece of textured cloth with Copic Blending Solution and dabbed the background to get that stippled effect.
I created the randomly striped base piece using 3 of the Copic colors listed above: T1, T3 and T5. I didn't have gray string that matched as closely as I would like, so I just colored up some string with my T5 Copic, and I did the same with the mini clothespin using V17.
Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to seeing how you all are inspired by these gray tones. Don't forget to link your creations below.
Have a fantastic week!!
