Power Poppy Neutrals

This week over at the Power Poppy blog Tosha is filling in for Julie as host of the Hues to Use challenge and she has a very thought provoking color palette for us...grayscale.

I have to admit, color challenges scare me to begin with, which is one of the reasons I always push myself to play along with the Hues to Use (well, that and Marcy has so many beautiful images that I want to color!) but when I saw what Tosha wanted us to do I was scared and intrigued! I immediately thought about doing some of the new mushroom images in grayscale but I'm not even going to lie, I tried it and hated it! Those images are now sitting in my circular file with a stream of naughty words still hanging in the air of my craft room. I walked away for a few days and decided to step back to the table this afternoon and grabbed the clear set Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas for my next try.

I used my C copics to color in the gerberas, going with C0-C5. As I finished coloring I liked how it looked but I couldn't figure out a layout so I headed over to Pinterest to look at the Power Poppy board and their sketches. I found one that I thought would go good with this image and ran with it!

The patterned paper is some retired SU Neutrals DSP that I have in my stash and it was perfect for this challenge. I don't think the photo really does it justice, I really like how the card came out!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You Rocked the neuts Lisa!!! Love the Gerberas in gray scale!! And your layout and papers enhance them beautifully!! I'm so glad you kept going because this turned out great. I had some failed attempts with this digi image too. I tried white on light gray and dark gray and ended up printing regular 'ole black. It's always a long process with me. ;)
