Today ushers in a new month long challenge at Power Poppy! Kathy’s our host and she’s challenging us to Embellish This! Think buttons, pearls, rhinestones, ribbon, brads....the possibilities and the list of embellishments you could use are endless!
I brought out the lovely new set Cozy Cupfuls because I really wanted to colour up this little cupful of Christmas tree. Isn’t it the sweetest? As as I was thinking about what colour I wanted to use and what embellishments I had, I thought about these pretty sequins I had, and that’s how the colours of the card were born!
Stamped on XPres It Blending cardstock, coloured with Copics and then the inside of the die was sponged with Rich Razzleberry ink.
I decided to do a tufted look by scoring diagonal lines and then adding the sequins in the meeting points for my embellishing. I added some sparkly ribbon to finish off the design. That’s one of the best things about Christmas....all the sparkle!
Such a festive little tree! Here’s the Copics I used below.
Here’s the gang playing along in the Embellish This challenge....join in and you could win Power Poppy goodies! Enter your creation this month at the Power Poppy Blog...
