Christmas Under Glass by Power Poppy for June Merry Little Christmas Challenge on the 1st of June, 2021

For my June challenge with Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog (which was meant to be my May challenge, but life just got in the way of me posting in time!) I chose to use some stamps from one of my favourite stamp shops - Power Poppy, drawn by the wonderful Marcella.

Here is my card:

I chose Under Glass: Christmas Traditions which I stamped using my MISTI with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on to X-Press It Blending Card.

Then I have coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • glass - B0000, B00, BG10, W1, W3
  • bases - E40, E44, E47
  • tree - YG03, G14, G17
  • yellows - Y13, Y15, YR27
  • blues - B12, B14, B16
  • pinks - RV13, RV17, RV19
  • purples - V01, V04, V06
  • greens - YG03, G14, G17
  • reds - R24, R27, R29
  • whites - C00, C0, twinkle Stickles, clear Wink of Stella
  • black - C5, C7, C9
  • darker purple - BV11, BV13, BV17
  • apples - R24, R27, R39, YG03
  • Santa's belt buckle - Y26, Y28, clear Wink of Stella
  • reindeer - E11, E13, E15, E17, E19
  • reindeer antlers - E47
  • snow - BV0000, C0, clear Wink of Stella
  • string of baubles - B16, RV09, V25, YR09
  • JOY - E30, E31, E34
I fussy cut out the images and then adhered them to a slimline card from Envelope Solutions.
Then I have stamped the sentiment from Glitter House Village in Nautical Blue Memento ink using my MISTI.
Here is another photo, but the sentiment is hidden by the spiky things!

I have taken inspiration for the colouring from the Power Poppy Blog as well as the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring of the Under Glass images: hopefully you can see a little of the sparkle.
