Hi there, I have a quick post tonight to share a card I just made. After a full weekend of work and nanny duties, I decided some 'colouring in' to help wind down.
I have a new Penny Black stamp from the brushstroke collection called Christmas Red. I was a little intimidated to use it so I went all out and even used a technique that I'm not comfortable with. No line colouring.
I used my MISTI to stamp the image with antique linen ink. My polychromo pencils were used to create the outlines and then blended my colouring with gamsol and blending stump. You won't be able to see it in this photo but I also covered the whole thing with glitter using a Spectrum Noir pen.
I fussy cut the poinsettia then used a guillotine to give it a nice edge. I stamped the sentiment (using my MISTI), then poped up the poinsettia with foam tape.
I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Penny Black Saturday Challenge (Sparkle and Shine), Penny Black and More (Flowers), My Time to Craft (Christmas Flowers), Day of the Month Cart Club (Poinsettia Day)
Thanks for popping in today. Only 3 more sleeps until Christmas! I hope you have a magical day :)
