“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care”. Today we have a lovely showcase of stockings from Power Poppy that Marcy has beautifully curated. Each of the stockings has it’s own special flair....see what she has to say about the lovely set Fully Stocked.
"Folks, I could draw stockings every day, different themes, different patterns, different styles, all stuffed with goodies. Do you know HOW HARD IT WAS to narrow this down to only three? The stocking struggle is real. Luckily, each of these special stockings was carefully curated, decorated, and trimmed to the nines. Plus they're fully stocked and each one comes with a coordinating accent image. We have a gardener's dream with a journal, tools, tags, and trimmings, complete with mistletoe accent stamp. A vintage European-style linen stocking has sleigh bells, greens, gifts, and a pretty pear. Accent this one with the greenery-topped bell. Lastly, give the gift of childhood with the button-and-appliquéed stocking, filled with kid-centric delights. A group of buttons makes a nice background stamp. Three scripty sentiments work with all of the illustrations beautifully. Includes 9 images."
All these stockings are so very pretty and I am looking forward to colouring each one, but today I chose the jingle bell stocking to play with. With that pretty pear in there, I thought a nice contrast of colour would be a tealy-blue-green, so I coloured the image with Copics, and then finished it off with some primacolour pencils.
I added some texture with embossing paste in the background to look a little like falling snow, and then found some pretty sparkly gold washi tape that really glitzes it up.
Of course, I had to dig through my stash to see if I could find some of my jingle bells, so it not only looks pretty, but makes a lovely little jingle sound too. Papers are Echo Park - I Love Winter.
Here’s the Copics I used, I also used some blue-green prismacolor pencil on the stocking, some gold on the bells and some browns on the packaging.
