Power Poppy Challenge: Switch up Your Shades!

This month the Power Poppy challenge from Allison Cope is to use a different coloring medium than you normally do! I normally color images using this time I stretched myself a little bit and  used reinkers  diluted with water and fine tip paint brushes. The floral image is a SU! hostess set.   I followed a SCS tutorial on the" pleated skirt" fold for the cute paper fold. I made this for my daughter's birthday card and wanted something feminine and flirty. The designer paper is also from SU! The tiny paint splatter look is SU! Gorgeous Grunge which I used to add a bit of texture to my circle die and three sequins in sky blue from Doodlebug found at my local scrap booking store!
Thanks so much for peeking in~wishing you a blessed day!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!


  1. Springy delight. THe pleaded paper is so cool, nicely done. We would use some spring!

  2. Oh, Traci, what beautiful card! I love the pleated skirt technique and the beautiful designer paper. What a great way to change it up for the Power Poppy challenge this month by using reinkers to color. Your daughter is going to love it! Warm hugs!

  3. What fun Traci! I love the image and how it really mimics the background paper you used -- fun! The little razzle dazzle with sequins puts the icing on the cake! So glad you joined us gals over at Power Poppy this month!

  4. This is so pretty Traci! I love the patterned paper for the pleated’s so great with the watercolouring! Thanks so much for joining us at Power Poppy this month!
