Well hello there and welcome back for one last look at all of the fabulousness from this month's Power Poppy Release....the Power Poppy Blog Hop!
Marcella has really outdone herself.....adding four new sets to her Happiest Holiday Collection and what beautiful sets these are! I decided to use the totally gorgeous Heaven and Nature Sing. My idea was to make the sweet little birds look like the Black Capped Chickadees that I see so often around my feeders in the yard.
I stamped my image with Tuxedo Black ink from Memento and colored it in with Copics. Next, I die cut my image out, sponged on some ink and used my Krylon 18KT Gold Leafing pen around the edges. I layered a couple of pretty Christmas papers, punched a border, stitched it all together, added a bow and adhered it to a cream card stock base. To finish it off, I stamped this beautiful sentiment and adhered it to my card with some foam dimensionals. I did cut out a little notch so the bow could cozy up to my flowers.
Oh, I did also use some Ranger Glossy Accents on my berries and my Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen to add a little shimmer in the flower centers. I love this sweet sentiment and beautiful image...there is so much detail and it really does color up more quickly than you would think. Actually, I think it would look gorgeous stamped in a single color with no extra coloring.....I may test that theory a little later on and will report back if I do .....I have never know a Marcella image that didn't look amazing no matter what you did or didn't do to it though....;).
So, that is all I have for you today but the rest of the incredible Bloom Brigade has some pretty amazing things for you to see....make sure you leave them a little blog love while you're there and then if you haven't already, start making your wish list because all of the amazing sets from this release go on sale today! You could get an early start on some Christmas shopping for friends, or even for yourself! ;) I hope you have a wonderful weekend and can stop by again soon....until then, take care! :)
