There's still a week left to join in at CAS Christmas
where Loll has chosen our challenge.
The Design Team along with our fantastic Guest Designer, Marina (My Perfect Life)
have some beautiful poinsettias to share with you at
the challenge site.
The AAA Card Challenge is
To make this card I used a Penny Black Brushstroke stamp
placed it in my MISTI and inked it up with mini ink pads and markers.
First I stamped with Spun Sugar, went over the ink with a damp
waterbrush and stamped again.
I repeated this using Festive Berries ink.
When I was pretty well satisfied with the petals, I inked the stem with
a Peeled Paint marker then edged the stem with Pine Needles.
I pulled color out of the flower for the wash, then dropped in
a bit of Twisted Citron ink smooshed on my palette and picked up
with a wet water brush.
Finally, I inked the petal details with a Barn Door marker,
stamped and blended.
I used a Stitched Arch Die to cut the image
and a larger die from the same set for the frame.
The top die cut layer is on foam for added dimension.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
