Meet today's card...another one done for Christmas.
Penny Black had yet come out with another wonderful poinsettia stamp called Scarlet Majesty that I am having such fun with. If you like to play with watercoloring techniques, you will love this stamp.
I decided to use it in a very simple, cas way today.
I began by inking my stamp with Versamark ink and stamped the poinsettia in the top corner of my card. Then using white embossing powder, I heat set the flower.
I used Candied Apple and Barn Door Distress ink and rubbed it over the whole card front concentrating the darker red over the flower.
I stamped the sentiment from the PB Yuletide Wishes set and embossed that with clear powder.
I splattered water over the whole piece which lifted the Distress ink giving it a snowy appearance.
To add to the snowy effect, I rubbed my Versamark pad around the edges and embossed those with more white eb powder. I added the black gems to the flower center to help balance out the black sentiment.
Adding my card to these challenges:
