Lamp Post

Lamp Post - I so enjoyed coloring this lamp post image by Robyn's Fetish. I take online Copic classes from Suzanne Dean and she started session 5 that includes coloring Patina. It is a fun technique and so easy. This is only the second one that I have done. The first one, I really messed up the holly leaves, so I made a second attempt. I still did not master the hollies, so I hide them behind a bow.
I added some Stickles to the candle flame. The pine branches are a MS punch and I added 3 gemstones.

My DP is also Robyn's Fetish, who is our sponsor this fortnight at Creative Card Crew. It is digi paper and this was my first time to use digi paper. It was so easy to use and I liked that I could make the design as big or small as I wanted it. I also used some vellum. The paper was so pretty that I wanted to show it. I added Holly Stickles to the vellum. All of my papers were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress inks.

The poinsettia is a Heartfelt Creations stamp that was heat embossed by my wonderful friend Milly. I used my gold Viva Decor pearl pen in the center.

Our challenge at Creative Card Crew is Christmas lights. Hope you can join us.
