Hi there 🙂 I colored this lovely image, part of the Merriest Berries digital stamp set, from Power Poppy, before Christmas. Then, with a lot of stuff going on, and the early January aversion to anything Christmas, it made it’s way to the bottom of my project pile. I guess I’m feeling the spirit again, because I just had to use it for the new challenge at the Power Poppy blog. This month’s Power and Spark challenge is to grab a map (or sketch, as some call it), and create a project inspired by it. Power Poppy is collaborating with Page Maps, and have a number of maps to choose from 🙂 I chose this one for my card:
The image was printed on grey Kraft paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut out. I found some rather muted DP and edged it lightly with some red ink, before adhering it to a grey card base. I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix scribble die underneath the holly, to make the image pop a bit. I used the same red paper, stamped with a greeting from a free magazine set, and cut a banner for the sentiment. I stuck pretty close to the exact sketch for my card…..but have already got a few ideas how I can play with it (and the other ones).
I’d like to enter the following challenges with this card:
