Power Poppy Hues to Use and Day 29 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello, Friends! Happy Monday to ya! Not only are we just about half way thru the month of February, we are also at the end of another coloring challenge. Can you believe it?! I did something a little differently this time. I decided to post my coloring only on Instagram. I didn't post everyday, but I posted a lot more than I've shown here on my blog. And, I only posted Power Poppy images. I'm really wanting to hone my colored pencil skills and I think Power Poppy images are perfect for that.

Anywho...I want to tell you about a fun challenge that goes on over at Power Poppy. It's called Hues to Use. Do you know about it? Well, it's a color challenge and if you play along, you and your artwork will be featured on the Power Poppy blog. It's all for fun and sharing our creations. So, I decided to play along with the February Hues to Use. This is the color palette...

Pretty, isn't it? And perfect for this month of Love and Valentine's.

Here is how I used these hues...

I used the Follow Your Heart digi stamp. I printed the image onto smooth white card stock, I colored it with Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils, die cut it with my Brother ScanNCut and THEN...I foiled it with pink foil! Talk about sugary sweet!

Creating this card was fun and easy. Especially since the color palette was already determined. That is the beauty of this challenge. You take a group of colors and you make something with it. Whatever you want! And, another cool thing is, if you're ever stumped for a color combo, you can always refer back to the Hues to Use archives on the Power Poppy blog. They are all right there, just for YOU.

One more look at it... 

That's it for me today. I'm working on a doozie of an image that I will share with you on Thursday. Until then, go forth and be crafty!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely card. I've seen the hues to use challenges, but honestly, kind of forget all about challenges when I sit down to create. Someday, maybe. I kind of skidded to a stop when it came to the Coloring Challenge(that is one I don't forget, but life gets in my way). I really like what you did on this card. The image is lovely, the coloring is beautiful and that foiling takes to the next level. So pretty! I also like the embossing in the background. Thanks so much for sharing. Looking forward to your doozy of an image!! Hugs!
