Creative Confetti: Just Color!


Hello peeps! If you've been paying attention to the buzz in blogland, you know that fabulous woman Kathy Racoosin is at it again with another 30 Day Coloring Challenge over at The Daily Marker! So, in the spirit of her mission to get us all in touch with our inner coloring chi, I decided to focus this week's Creative Confetti on doing just that and supporting a stamping sister at the same time! 



HOW TO PLAY: Simply pick up a coloring medium -- any one will do -- and get coloring! Just that simple folks! If you want to get in on the action over at the Daily Marker, there are 3 ways to share what you are coloring. If you want to join a community of coloring enthusiasts, post on FaceBook or Instagram. Be sure to use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. Or, you can link up to thedailymarker.com's blog by clicking here to link up.

Moving on to my creation!


For my creation, I decided to dabble in a medium that I rarely pick up. I am so used to my Copic markers that the supplies I have on hand to watercolor often get ignored. Not this time! I put on some jams and just colored, colored, colored! I used a mix of watercolor and Distress Inks. I chose the Distress Inks for the rose and green shades because they looked a little more muted and I didn't want every piece of this image to be over the top bold and bright. I also used a few Distress Inks to create a watercolor washed backdrop too.


I will say that this image was a sneaky peek of sorts! You might recognize this image as a part of Power Poppy's Bowl of Beauty digital stamp set but if you stay tuned to the Power Poppy blog this week, you'll see why this illustration is breaking out into a whole new format! Is that enough of a teaser for you?


Starting TOMORROW, Marcella has a whole hit parade of action coming your way -- 5 new stamp sets, amazing designer samples and a ab fab collab to show off all these new sets featuring one of the biggest names in stamping! Yep, we are pretty giddy around here so you will have to stay tuned!

So, now it's your turn! Color up something fun! Use Power Poppy stamps if you have them but if you don't maybe now is your chance to win some! If you color and then link up your image using the linky below, you might be one of the lucky stampers to win a $25 gift code to the Power Poppy Shop! YIPPEE!

Happy Creating!
