Power Poppy - The Blossom Challenge

Yes, you got it right! This is the second blossom challenge since breathing 
life back into Power Poppy.
Isn't it exciting to see all of the Inspire Mondays with new and creative
 ideas for you to try? 

Well it is time for another Blossom challenge this month Christine is calling it 
The Glassy Eyed Challenge
This is an opportunity for you to try coloring glass.  
 Power Poppy has many stamps that are in or under clear glass, even the new 
Accentuate the Positive set. There will be a list of those for you on 
Christine's post for Monday. 

I downloaded this image called Zinnia Parade and colored it up for an A2 size card with my Copic markers. They are my go-to for coloring. After completing the coloring I did use some Prismacolor pencils to sharpen up the image. 

Our WINNER will receive a $20 gift card to use at the Power Poppy Store!! The challenge is open until noon on July 15th! Link up your project to the Power Poppy Blog for a chance to win!
Remember that you can print in any size when using digital images and you may be more comfortable with a larger size.  It does not have to be a card. Just try coloring. 

Here are some of the cards that I have done in the past showing you different glass images

Sometimes I use the artist's lines to guide me. As I did here.  And here!

You can look at a picture of a jar. 

Try it out and I would love to see what you do.
