Power Poppy October Release Preview ~ Day 2







Howdy!!  It's Day Two of Power Poppy's Release week and we're featuring a super fun sentiment set called Joyful Arrangements.  I had a ball making this card.  It's not too detailed, but I tried something new...Metallic Pitt Artist Pens.  When I saw the fun fonted senitments in this set, this "Jolly Good Holiday" just said "chalkboard" to me.  Then I started playing with the Metallic Pitt pens on black cardstock.  LOVE it!!  I just stamped the sentiment with Whisper White ink (SU!), heat set it, and colored it in with the pens.  Super easy!







 
Now, check out with the rest of the Bloom Brigade has to share today.


That's all folks!  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a peak at another charming set. 

    Happy Stamping!

Tosh, love the blackboard technique here! And is it me, or does this sentiment sound British! Lovely! Beautiful die for the frame as well! I just read your bio too -- love your description of yourself avoiding housework -- I may steal it for myself (although I don't have a blog so there's no copyright issue, lol).

A chalk board effect???? Fabulous! I have never heard of those pens before so you know I'll be off to "Google" it when I am done here -- LOVE the results sweet lady!

Oh, cute papers and colors and everything for your colored chalkboard sentiment! I am reminded once again that there's more than one way to color an image. I need to get my metallic pencils out. Haven't used them in years! What a fabulous card, Tosh!
