Are you ready for a fun Power & Spark Challenge from Power Poppy? This month I have the privilege of hosting the challenge, and I thought it would be fun to see some Shabby Chic creations.
To play along with this month's challenge, you simply need to create a card or project using soft colors, distressed edges, vintage embellishments...anything that gives your creation that shabby chic look. You decide what that means to you!
Here's a peek at my creation:
My color combo is a fresh & modern one: kraft, pink, gray, and white. Love these colors together!
Rather than printing the digital image off in the usual black ink, I chose to invert the colors. This made the sunflower image white and the background black. I then lightened up the background until it was a soft gray color. Coloring the image was a little trickier than usual, since if I colored over the white lines, they would disappear. I chose to not do as much blending as I normally would, and the resulting look is bold and colorful.
Here's a close-up:
Here's a look at the Copic colors I used:
Finally, here's a peek at the inside of the card:
A couple of coordinating card stock layers and a fantastic sentiment highlighted with a bit of RV00 Copic marker, makes for a simple & attractive inside.
Be sure to swing by the rest of the Bloom Brigade blogs to see their incredible creations today. Here's who is playing along:
Have yourselves a BEAUTIFUL weekend, friends!
