Happy countdown-till-Christmas week! I hope things are coming together for you. This week I'll share the last of the Christmas cards. For the most part I had to set the coloring aside as I'd given myself barely a month to make almost 50 cards. What was I thinking?
I was hurrying along when I made this card. Yes, more pink, but just grabbing the closest ink pad, I guess. We'll imagine these flowers are poinsettias, somewhat stylized, perhaps, but you can see the resemblance.
After I die cut the Stitched Poinsettia Trio from my last card I was left with a negative that looked like it would make a good stencil, so I tried it out. Sponged pink through the stencil and then defined the petal edges with a mulberry Prismacolor pencil, blended with Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits). Took a quick shot of my paraphernalia below:
All those cute little snowflakes are from Power Poppy's Action Santa set. They were stamped in SU!'s Cool Caribbean. I cut away part of the lower edge and added a die cut sentiment, backed with a scrap of designer paper. Finished off with silver sequins and silver cord.
I had CAS(E) This Sketch #202 in mind when I made this. The design team had lots of variations, so I'm hoping I'm close enough to the design . Here's the sketch:
Also joining the fun at CAS Mix Up -- Stamping + Sponging + Your Choice. I have stamped snowflakes, sponged flowers, and my extra choice is the pencil coloring on the flower edges.
I'll be back tomorrow. Supplies are listed below. Have a happy day!
