I've been envisioning this card for a while now, and with Christmas so close, I knew I had better get this card done.
To make this card I used the gorgeous DRS Designs "Giant Poinsettia". I stamped the image twice onto X-Press It cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black dye. I colored the image with Copic markers. I did a faint spray of Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz onto the petals and added some crystal Stickles to the small berries in the middle. I cut the twice stamped flowers with my detailed scissors and set aside.
I then preformed the resist technique on a glossy piece of cardstock. I repeatedly stamped DRS Designs "Polka Dot Background" with Versamark Watermark. I applied some heat, and then applied Adirondack Pool dye onto the panel. I used a paper towel to move and wipe off the ink. I framed this panel with black cardstock.
I then arranged the flowers onto this background panel I had created. A portion of the flowers were cut, allowing just a small portion of one poinsettia to show. I did use a Memento Tuxedo Black marker to ink up the swirl portion of the image and directly stamp onto the background panel.
Using DRS Designs "Christmas Multi Greeting" I inked up one "Merry Christmas" using a Memento Tuxedo Black marker and stamped directly onto the background panel.
Sure hope you have a wonderfully productive weekend. I sure need to have one, LOL!
