First off, let me start by saying a VERY Happy Birthday to my friend Julie Koerber. Julie is the glue that keeps us all running smoothly at Power Poppy and she’s also a absolutely lovely, gifted, warm and caring friend. Be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday when you pop by. AND how fun is it that Tosha Leyendekker also has her Birhday today too! She’s a gem, full of life, fun and heartfelt. Such great ladies, both of them :)
Marcy just released another Instant Garden image this week with a fabulous Christmas theme that will have you singing!
It’s called Partridge in a Pear Tree! I chose to go really dramatic with this one using non-traditional Christmas colours too. I’ll show you where my inspiration came from. I found both of these pictures perusing through Pinterest and that that black background on both of these pieces was so striking. I was so unsure whether I should try it or not!
Aren’t they both lovely inspiration?
Here was the design without the background before I decided to just go for it!
And here it was after. What do you think? Was it a good decision?
Card details are really simple, stitched dies, stitched framing and a stitched die bow (from The Cat’s Pajamas).
I have to say I love how it turned out. It’s fun to take a bit of a departure from what you would normally do! And it’s such a gorgeous image to play with.
I did use a lot of Copics for this one...
Now, these fabulous Bloom Brigaders have more Partridge in a Pear Tree inspiration for you today!
