Yay, Day Four of fantastic Happiest Holiday Sneak Peeks at Power Poppy!
There are just some sets that make you OOOOO as soon as you see them. When Marcy first illustrated this Olive and Oak set as a digital image I just about fell off my chair. I was SO excited to hear that she was expanding the set and putting it into polymer, It’s called Olive & Oak Expanded! It is a must have set in my opinion.
I LOVE fall leaves, and one of my favourite pass-times is to crunch them when my husband and I walk most days. I go out of my way to find the crunchiest ones, and my husband is quite entertained by me. :)
I still wanted to work with the largest image in the set because I really wanted to take another stab at all this gorgeous colouring in a Thanksgiving themed card. I found some older papers that had the acorn and leaves theme and put it all together after carefully trimming out the image. It did take me a while but, it’s so worth it in the end.
I added the sentiment from the set into a stitched circle, added some simple twine and sewn layers. Such a beauty that speaks to the colour and abundance of autumn and all we have to be grateful for!
The selection of Copics I used, and I enjoyed every minute colouring it!

and pop by to see Marcy at the Power Poppy Blog - she’s going to link up some of the other ways the Bloom Brigade has used this set in the past few months.
