Through the Woods ~ Power Poppy



Isn't this little tree in a bucket just adorable?  It's from one of Power Poppy's newest Christmas sets called Through the Woods.  I kind of did a "no-line" coloring technique.  Now, it's not totally no-line because I used too dark of a gray to stamp the image.  Thus the gray outlined birds, stars and white ornaments.  It worked for the bucket and tree though.  Below is a close up so you can see how I added White Nuvo Crystal Drops with some Cool Highlights Transparent Microfine glitter (Glitter Ritz) for some dimension.  I hope you can see the sparkle.


By sharing this ultimate close-up, you can also see my marker flicks on the branches, and where I missed some.  Man, I wish my eyes could see this close up while coloring.  Because the image is only about 4" high, I was doing a lot of guess work while coloring the tree. I even used a magnifier to make sure I got the black lines added correctly, on the bucket, with a multi-liner.

Anyway, that's it for today's project.  Be sure to stop by the following Bloom Brigade blogs for some more inspiration:

Wild Miraculous Mushrooms ~ Power Poppy



I was blessed to be able to attend Jennifer Dove's Boot camp last weekend and Power Poppy was one of the sponsors.  Jennifer shared some of her techniques to color the mushroom caps, but I was unable to finish the entire image while there.  So, I finished this baby up today.  I combined the digital image from Miraculous Mushrooms with the sentiment from the clear set Wild Mushrooms.  Everything was colored with Copics, and then die cut with Scored and Pierced Rectangles (Spellbinders)

If you ever get a chance to attend one of Jennifer's Boot camps, I highly recommend doing so.  Not only did I learn A TON, but I had a blast doing so.  Everyone is so helpful and entertaining at the same time.  

That's it from me for today.  Short and sweet.  Be sure to stop by Stacy's blog to see what she has to inspire you with today.

Thanks for visiting!!

  Happy Stamping!
