Hello there and welcome back for Day 2 of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday 2018 stamp release! Today's set features some beautiful images that can be used for two step stamping, border stamping, or a single image stamp....you choose! :) So say hello to Let Your Heart Be Light....
Soooo, I decided to get outside my Copic comfort zone and try out my woefully neglected Polychromos colored pencils for this image. I chose to stamp a single image and one of the darling sentiments from this set.....oh my word, that font! :) I stamped my image with Memento's Rich Cocoa ink and proceeded to experiment with my pencils. I will list the colors I used below. It took a while but mostly because I was trying to familiarize myself with the colors I have. It is definitely a lot different from my Copics, but not quite as scary as I worried it might be...overall, I really like the pencils but I do think I need more practice to feel comfortable using them. My card is just a few simple layers because I wanted this glorious image to be front and center! This card measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".
Isn't this the dreamiest little poinsettia and holly image? Marcella always knows just how to make our little crafty coloring hearts go pitter patter, doesn't she? As always, her details are amazing and this is a really fun color up!
So that is all for my card today, but my Bloomie sisters have some amazing cards to tempt and inspire you so make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there. Also make sure to check out the Power Poppy blog for Marcella's post on this lovely new stamp set. I thank you so much for stopping by today, and hope to see you back tomorrow for Day 3 of Power Poppy's Happiest Holiday 2018 stamp release. Until then, take care!
