Feeling so happy that I finally created a card that I love!
I began by rubbing Fired Brick, Barn Door and Spun Sugar Distress inks onto my card front being sure to blend all the colors together. To add interest to the background, I placed a stencil from Tim Holtz over the inked area and sponged on water to help remove some of the ink.
While that dried, I stamped the flower from Penny Black called Christmas Pride with Memento black ink and did a loose watercoloring on it leaving the edge of the petals white.
I splattered some white paint over the red background to add a snowy feeling then rubbed the edged with my Versamark ink pad and embossed using white embossing powder.
The sentiment is a new one from Penny Black that I also embossed in white and pop dotted the poinsettia on last.
Adding my card to these challenges:
