For today I am playing along with Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. The cue word for this month is poinsettia.
Happy Little Christmas Challenge
|This delicious ornament was painted using Perfect Pearls|
for a bit of shine.
|The poinsettia was stamped twice then fussy cut and|
sprayed with Perfect Pearls and water.
Heat embossing the image allowed me to paint with Perfect Pearls. Such a beautiful bit of shine that can only be seen in the light? In trying to keep the card CAS I considered minimal color; gold and red. This allows the poinsettia to be the star of the show. More dramatically, it has been popped off the card by paper piecing and dimensional tape. This is also a very intricate stamp that needed a simple backdrop so I added a sense of space by stamping a pine branch and a very simple, yet interesting looking, sentiment.
That should do it for me I hope you enjoyed your stay with me here at TheGrandStampede. Please feel free to leave a comment; I really enjoy reading your comments. Thank you so much and we will see soon with another creation.
All the best,
