The Blossom Challenge: Gold, Silver and Shimmer!

Hello Power Poppy Friends!  It’s Christine with you today wondering when our lasting fall will begin to turn to the white of Winter.  Even though I don’t love long winters, I am so glad I live where it snows.  There’s is nothing more beautiful and peaceful then a soft snowfall, or looking at a sparkling snowcovered area.  It’s shimmer and shine makes the world look like a faceted gem! 

Today at Power Poppy, we’re excited to be kicking off a brand new Challenge and showcase some brand new digi images in the 2022 Digital Blitz that Marcy has cooked up for us!  You’ll see some wonderful remastered images that Marcy has released in the past in polymer that will be delightful for you to create with.  

The Blossom Challenge this month is called Gold Silver and Shimmer, and it’s all about metallic and shine.  

I have two designs to show you and I’ll begin with this brand new and lovely Wrapped with Love Digi.  It is filled with little pretties that evoke a elegant and classy traditional vintage Christmas all wrapped up in a bow!  I coloured the image with Copics, and added lots of touches of shimmer with my glitter pen on the ornaments, stars and paired it with pretty glittery paper.  Paired with the non-traditional coloured plaid patterned paper and it’s full of charm.  

My next design is cozy and warm with rustic touches using a remastered image called Mighty Pine.  I love winter botanicals like this where you can really dig into the colouring.  I brought it to life with Copics, a little Prismacolour Pencil and some gold metallic pen touches on the jingle bells.  All layered onto a distress oxide ink blended and stencilled background.  Little splatters of gold shimmer and wood veneer hearts tie it all together.  

Does Gold, Silver and Shimmer make your heart sing? Wed love to have you join in the challenge this month showing us your best designs with gold, silver or shimmery elements.  Pull out your embossing, gold, silver or shimmery paper, foiling, embellishments and paper treatments.  Dazzle us!
