Happiest Holiday Release Previews ~ Rustic Rejoicing


Howdy friends!!  Welcome to day 2 of our Power Poppy Happiest Holiday Release Previews!!  Now that was a "mouthful".  ;)  I would like to start by saying...Minc'd images are BUGGERS to photograph!!!  Seriously!!  So, if you could, please use your imagination a bit when looking at the photos...

Today the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade is featuring the new set Rustic Rejoicing.  I have quite a pinecone collection.  Some really, REALLY large ones in fact.  I display them in a rather ginormous antique bowl that I leave out year round.  I just can't bear to put them away.  So, when I saw this image, I was delighted to say the least.  
I decided to try something new to me.  I have a Minc Machine that I've used often with Marcella's images, but I had never colored the image before Minc'ing it.  I never dreamed Copics would work with Toner ink.  But after seeing Power Poppy Instant Gardener Elizabeth Zaffarano's Instagram post (saffronkingfisher) on coloring an image and Minc'ing over it, I knew I had to try it. She showed it off so beautifully!!!

Showing the depth of color without the shine was quite a challenge, so I will try and post a little video on Instagram today so it's easier to see. ( tosh.l )

The image was colored with Copics, and Minc'd with Champagne Foil. 
  


That's it for me today, y'all.  I hope you've been enjoying all the previews so far.  There is so much more to see, and it's so exciting!!

Wow, Tosh, this is gorgeous, and I know it's far prettier IRL than on a post like this. I did see it last night on Instagram, and it was fabulous the way you showed it! I love the elegant layout with the thin black matting and the fishtail banners. Stunning! Hugs and love! xoxo
