Mo’s Boughs for the Wreath

2010 01 09_0265

One of my "Vigor and Vim in 2010" goals for the new year is to participate in all the Copic Creations Challenges. I love, love this digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil, Boughs for the Wreath, so I knew immediately what I wanted to do for Challenge #18 – Pine Trees/Branches. I took my color inspiration from this amazing card by Linda Heavens. Linda used colored pencils, but, of course, I wanted to tackle it with my Copic markers and the Copic air system Santa brought me (thanks Tom!).

I followed the instructions in Susan Tierney Cockburn's book, Paper Bouquet to make the pinecone and boughs with the following ingredients:

  • Paper Bunch tool kit
  • Paper Bunch punhes: small pear, mega fern, and pine bough.
  • I air sprayed the punched out branches with G28 and the pinecones with E29.
