I am back with another card share.
This card was made using the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.
This set, Peaceful Poinsettia, caught my eye first when looking through the mini catalog.
Poinsettias were my Mom's favorite at Christmas and when ever I see them it takes me back to all of our wonderful Christmases. My parents have been gone for many years now but we never stop missing our loved ones.
Anyway I love to color and because the poinsettias have a special memory for me, I love to use them on some Christmas cards each year.
The sketch seemed like a perfect place for a little flower for the circle element in the sketch.
I stamped the image a few times onto thick whisper white and colored with my ink pads and water brush.
I fussy cut them out and layered them together using some dimensionals between the layers.
The base of the card is Basic Gray card stock, then a layer of Cherry Cobbler. The DSP is from the Festive Farmhouse pack.
I die cue the leaves and holly berries out with the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits that match the stamp set.
The seniment is stamped with real red ink a few times to build and darken the color.
Thanks for coming by!
