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:
