The Blossom Challenge: Clean Slate

Welcome to a new year Power Poppy friends!  It’s Christine welcoming you today to start new year right with a new theme for The Blossom Challenge!  January brings a lot of new starts, maybe even new creative goodies and fresh creative juices, so we’re all about a Clean Slate this month!  So put away all the layers and extra do-dads and instead show us your best clean and simple designs that celebrate that simple, clean and yet graphic style that packs a punch! 

Today I pulled out a now retired polymer set from Power Poppy which showcases all sorts of fun mushrooms!  Parts of that set are also available in digi form as Mushroom Trio, Miraculous Mushrooms and Morel Standards.  I stamped this image on Kraft cardstock and then pulled out my Prismacolor Pencils because I always love how pencils look on Kraft.  

You can achieve a look that almost glows!  I always lay down a layer of white prismacolor for the rest of the colours to lay on and blend.   A simple snail die seemed like the perfect accent, and then a bit of ribbon adds another pop of colour but keeps it clean, and the layers very simple.  


Now you’re invited to come and join us for this month’s Clean Slate!  All you need to do is create a Clean and Simple design showcasing any Power Poppy image and link it up below to be in the running!  

BUT THERE’S MORE!  Did you know Marcy’s got a gorgeous freebie you can use too?!  Just in time for Valentine’s The Rose Digi is FREE!  It would be a beautiful clean design image to use!  But we’d love to see any of your creations.  

You have until February 17th to enter!  Winner will be chosen at random and will receive a $20 Gift Code to the Power Poppy store!  

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
