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! In fact, if you've been watching Power Poppy's blog lately, you know the Bloomies are busy getting ready for part two of our Quiet Christmas Collection release. So, my sweet stamping friends, all I have had time for right now is what this challenge suggests -- Coloring!
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! So, you're welcome! ;-)
On to my coloring creation!
This little image above is a part of a new set that will be released this week called Seasons Greenings! The second part of Power Poppy's Quiet Christmas launches THURSDAY! Squeeee!!!! When it comes to this set, you know Marcella loves her plants and all things green, so this one features images perfect for that green thumb! I just love this one and all the fun things stuffed in that vintage wheelbarrow! I used Copic markers to color up this image and used so many, there was no way to keep track. Do you ever do that? Just grab what you think you need and then go over it and pick up another marker and keep on going? Well, that's pretty much how I color every image.
Do you ever use a corner of your paper to test drive colors? I always seem to end up with marks just like this on every finished image! ;-)
Of course, when I was done, I needed to add a little white gel pen to accent the shiny things and a little glitter glue for the snow! You'll have to tune in this week to see how this image worked its way into a card!
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!
