Creative Confetti: Just Color!


Hello sweet and sassy stampers! Are you ready for another Creative Confetti Challenge -- where we throw up a bit of inspiration for you to enjoy and hopefully be inspired by? Well, it's that time and this one is good for the soul! 


HOW TO PLAY:
Just color up one of your favorite images and show us all the progress shot! So, why take us up on this challenge? First of all, if you are the random winner at the end of our month-long challenge, you'll win a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop! But above that, and that's pretty darn awesome, there are physical benefits to coloring! Yep, there are! Your brain enters a meditative state when you color throwing off the day's stress and anxiety! Negative thoughts are put aside, helping you to be mindful of the moment. It helps us unplug! Now that you know the physical benefits, here's another reason why we latched onto this challenge for the week! It's because of this, my sweet friends!


That's right, our crafting bestie Kathy Racoosin sparked yet another Daily Coloring Challenge on November 1st and we have to join in, right? We have to throw open those markers and help her feel the love, right? (Psst. click the daily coloring challenge link for more details and don't forget to use the #thedailymarker30 hashtag if you post on social media!)

So, let's get to it! For my creation today, I knew I wanted to color up some Birthday Wishes! A friend of mine heads up a card ministry in her church and wanted me to help her color up some goodness. It's her job to share birthday wishes with the entire church. Can you imagine? So, of course, I said YES! I grabbed this little cake image from Power Poppy's Party Time stamp set and created an explosion of color! 



This little number is colored up with fun colorific fanfare using the Copic Markers next to the image plus a lighter version of each to fade out to the sides. I added some BV00 and BV02 to the bottom of the cake to help shade and used RV0000 and RV00 to add a little glow around the top. Just that simple folks! 

Here's a little closeup for you! 



Did you happy stampers play along with Creative Confetti at all during the month of October? You did? Awwwww... so glad! Listen up sweet peeps! After throwing all those amazing, colorful, creative and beautiful entries into the mix, this is the number that Random.org drew! 



And that means the winner is.....


 ***  THERESA POLLACK!  ***





Check out Theresa's sparkly and monochromatic creation entered from THIS challenge -- Sparkle in the Shade! Love the soft and serene vibe she created using Power Poppy's Sassy Succulents stamp set! 



Congrats Ms. Theresa! Go ahead and email us at bloom@powerpoppy.com and we will get your code sent right off to you so that you can use that $25 Gift Code to pick up some new Power Poppy goodness!

Okay stampers, now it's your turn to color up some love and then, once you're done, link up your creation below so you are in the running for the $25 Gift Code! Keep in mind, we run the same linky all month long so play along with me just one week or each week to expand your chances of winning! We can't wait to see what you color up!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Should this be a Power Poppy Image or any image we would like to color?
