MC Oct/13 - Poinsettias - Merry Christmas
Both cards done on 110# white cardstock 5.5" x 4.25" either landscape mode or portrait mode
So with the cardstock one, I left it on my mat and sponged a couple of Distress Reds all over (Worn Lipstick, Festive Berry, & Aged Mahogany), then stamped it with a Cornish Heritage Farms Music background using Versafine Black Onyx. I then removed it from my mat and started adhering the pieces to my card front using the stencil part to position my pieces correctly. Stamped the Xmas sentiment (Quietfire Design) with the black and clear embossed, then did the outline with a black Zig Writer. Final touch added a bunch of small yellow half pearls for the center.
For the clear plastic one, I embossed them with the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" folder, colored the backs with Spectrum Noir alcohol pens in a very light pink, then a fuchsia type pink, working with the light pink again to blend. When all were done and dry, I put them through my Zyron and used variegated gold leaf flakes on the adhesive side, burnished to remove excess. I used regular PVA glue to adhere each petal to my card, same process as above. Stamped the sentiment and added the black lines. Final touch used a Viva Yellow Quartz Glitter Pen for the center dots.
And it fits for these challenges:
Fashionable Stamping #58 use a mask or a stencil
One Stitch At A Time #184 use a digi
Pile it on Challenge #40 use your favorite color as a main color (today it's a red/pinky tone)
