Unabashedly Upbeat Challenge


Good morning Power Peeps!  We have a fun challenge today on the Power Poppy blog!   You can find all of the details here.


Here is my case of the album cover.  It doesn’t have to be an exact match…just your take on the design.  I chose to emulate it closely.  I printed the Tulips on watercolor paper and used a paint brush dipped in bleach to go over the lines to soften and blur them.  I then used a paint brush to watercolor the background using Adirondack re-inkers in Stream and Stonewashed by Ranger.    I stamped the sentiment, inking the PLANT in London Fog and the love in Tuxedo Black ink, both from Memento.   I used scraps of cardstock for my coordinating border.    This was a fun and quick card to make.  I hope you will join us!

Check out these other album inspired designs from the Power Poppy Brigade.

LOVE the watercolor look you gave the tulips! I've been thinking about trying something similar. The whole watercolory look of this is pretty fabulous, Danielle!

Beautiful card with a great water color effect! This was a most inspiring challenge. I just had to stop everything when I saw it and create a card entry before I did anything last week. It looks like I came up with a similar look trying to capture the look of the album.
