Power Poppy October Release Preview ~ Day 1

For my Waltzingmouse post, click HERE.





October is just around the corner, and that means another Power Poppy release.  Today we are featuring a set called Bottlebrush Holiday.  I chose to use the "Ho" image and make an elegant "Ho-Ho-Ho".  I know...a little odd for this sentiment, but this is where it ended up.  I inked up the "H" with Love Letter Memento and the wreath with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I then colored the wreaths with Copics and added some Dark Carmine Red Gloss gel to the berries, along with a bit of glitter.  I also added some Shabby White Embossing Enamel to the frames, snowflakes, banner, and circles for a sparkly distressed feel.



Here's a close up so you can see the distressed embossing, and the wreaths.  Oh, I added a fine black line to give a bit of shadow to the "H's" too, along with some glitter.



Lastly, I added the sentiment to the top after diecutting it with a banner die.

That's it for me today.  Be sure to check out what the Bloom Brigade has to share.  These gals are never short on inspiration...that's for sure!!

Copics:  YG: 95, 13, 11
                 G: 28, 21
              BG: 15

Thanks for dropping by.  Tomorrow I have a rather fun, graphic styled card to share with you. 
     Happy Stamping!
