Gina K Birthday Blessings with Kaleidacolor Ink

I only have one Kaleidacolor ink pad, and it is fun to work with!  You get such pretty results with little effort.  It was fun to make this card and refreshing not to make a Christmas card or project.  It was fun to add "just a pinch" of sequins.  They are all in style right now, but I have almost never used them before.

Gift Tag - Power Poppy Short Stacks

I decided to stamp out some more Power Poppy images and was inspired by their Go for the Gold challenge and the Gifts from the Heart challenge, and the Simon Says Stamp Tag it challenge.

I colored the image with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils.  I enjoyed adding the gold accents with a gel pen.  I need a bit more practice, but this will make a great gift tag.  I think it could be used for Christmas since it is versions of red and green.

Power Poppy - Chinese Lanterns - Sunny Harvest Stamp set

I have been eyeing the Power Poppy stamps sets all year.  I finally picked up two sets during the Black Friday sale.  I just love what I got, and the sweet personal touch in my order.  

I decided to participate in this month's challenge, which is to use any of the challenges from this year.  I did two off the list: Pencil Me In (color with pencils) and Hang Some Paper (use at least three patterned papers).
