Hello Stampin' Friends. Wow, has this week gone fast!
Here's a card for the Free for All Challenge on SCS, Rectangles & Circles. It's not like Wendy's card but it has both. And I only used one stamp set.
I used the Bells & Boughs set from the Holiday Mini for this card. I love all the images and they aren't too hard to paint.
I stamped the main imageon Whisper White with Black StazOn. Then I re-inked the center of the image and stamped on a piece of Whisper White scrap paper. Using inkpads & a blender pen, I painted the evergreen & poinsettia. On the second image I just painted the big flower.
The layout is from SC295. I really love this sketch and didn't get to it that week.
The sponging is due to the fact that I got a smudge on the side of the design panel. My Garden Green spot leaked and I forget to check for inky fingers after I use it! I like the sponging though, so it was a good thing.
I still have a few of those little gold seed beads and I used them in the center of the flowers. The beads are really the flower. The red bracts are leaves.
