Creative Confetti - Make it Shimmer

This week at Power Poppy, Julie has asked that we make it shimmer.  I was thinking that I should start thinking about my Christmas cards and printed out this digital image called Merriest Berries. 
Here it is. 

I colored up the image with Copic markers and then added Spectrum Noir Sparkle to it all.  The berries are covered with glossy accents and then more sparkle over the top. I fussy cut it out and placed it on a die-cut panel. The background panel is from MFT Country Plaid 6X6 paper. A few sequins from my stash. Sentiments outside and inside are from Poinsettia set. 

Sparkle is always hard to capture with a camera.  Here is a little better view of the shimmer. 
I will be adding this to the wonderful entries at Creative Confetti for this week. 
Thanks for stopping by!  I got one Christmas card done! 
Love your comments! 


  1. That is so very beautiful and the coloring is gorgeous! I love the shimmer too.

  2. LOVE this. I love everything about it. It's exactly my style, kind of vintage-y and homespun. That plaid on the background is superb and you have colored the image perfectly. When I grow up I want to color just like you......I so admire your ability to do that. Think I might have to pin this one. It's stunning!!!!

  3. Love your beautiful card Barbara. Your coloring is lovely and the plaid paper is perfect.
    I have to pin it also. TFS

  4. Oh wow! The sparkle is so hard to capture but you can definitely see it shine! So pretty! I adore this image and your pretty plaid! Merry Merry!

  5. You have inspired me this morning to make some Christmas cards! Love the gingham background too!

  6. Beautiful. I love that image and how you colored it and th paper is perfect. Keeping it simple allows the gorgeous image to be the star.

  7. So pretty...I love the colored berries with the added sparkle against that country plaid!! A real standout on the Power Poppy blog!
