Under Glass by Power Poppy for June Love to Craft Challenge on the 1st of June, 2021


For my June challenge with Love to Craft 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 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, BG02, W1, W3, W5
  • orchid leaves - G03, G17, G29
  • moss - YG03, G03, G17
  • orchid flower - RV52, RV55, RV66
  • inside of orchid - Y26, YR12
  • stamen - YR18, E44
  • pot - E40, E43, E44, E47
  • fern/leaves - G03, G17, G29, clear Wink of Stella
  • insides of flowers - E35, YR15, YR18
  • petals of flowers - RV52, RV55, RV66
  • book, E30, E31, E33
  • moss - YG03, YG63, G99
  • nest - E44, E47
  • eggs - B01, B02, B05
  • butterfly - B12, B14, B16, E43, E44
  • cactus - G03, G17, G29
  • spiky thing - Y26, Y28, gold glitter pen
  • books - V22, V25, V28, YG03, YG63, G99
  • thing with buttons - E30, E31, E33, R35, R37, R59, clear Wink of Stella
I fussy cut out the images and then adhered them to a slimline card from Envelope Solutions.
Then I have stamped a border from Snuggle Down (no longer available), a sentiment from Under Glass and another sentiment from Pure Prairie Spirit (also no longer available) in Nautical Blue Memento ink using my MISTI.

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 some sparkle.
