Poinsettia Christmas Cards
Hi Everyone, I've been working on some more Christmas cards, these three are all similar but a bit different.
The first is done with Real Red and the retired Glorious Green. The second is done with Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi, and the final one is done with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. They were all stamped in black and colored with markers, The first two were then stamped with versamark ink, and then put heat and stick powder over that then the glitter for the background piece, then assembled. The third one I was going for a more vintage look, and tore the cardstock and inked it with distress ink, and stamped it with en francais stamp and then I crumpled the background and used distress on it as well. It also looks a bit aged from the water that was spritzed on it as well. You can't see it in the picture as the camera didn't pick it up but it also has gold spots on it throughout, as it was sprayed with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and gold shimmer paint. love the effect that gives.
These cards also were done for the following challenges
1. Stamptacular Challenge:
2. Stamp Something Challenge
3. Winter Wonderland Challenge: No Designer Paper
Thanks for looking. Cindy
