Watercolor Poinsettia for Queen Beverly

The Queen for the Day at SCS this week is Beverly (aka ruby-heartedmom).  

Beverly has a wonderful gallery with lots of beautiful inspiration and she's so generous with her comments!  Here's the card I CASEd.


I stamped the poinsettia on watercolor paper with StazOn ink and used the Marker Layering Technique to color.  After it dried, I cut out the flower and leaves and adhered them to the front of the card.  I can see by the photo that I should have inked the edges of the flower. Oh, well, it's too late now.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Joyful Christmas
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Real Red, Garden Green)
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolor (snippet)
Other:  Delicate Designs EF, Gold Beads (?)

Addicted to Stamps and more has a new challenge up.  

HOLIDAYS
We want you to create something that has to do with a holiday that is seasonal (Christmas, Easter, New Years etc), a favourite holiday destination or even a national/public holiday.

I chose Christmas.

Festive Friday is offering up their last challenge of the year and ask us to pick any of the past challenges and do a new card.  I chose this challenge..


Pixie's Snippet Playground is staying open a little longer since Di has gone visiting a Christmas fair. Since I used some Watercolor paper snippets, I'm going to see what kind of mischief we can get into while she's away!  I've got my eye on that sleigh I saw sitting there. Wonder if we can find a horse?

52 Christmas Card Throwdown is asking us to chose a past challenge.  This is the one I picked.



Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy!

I love how you used the embossing like a ribbon across the card. Very striking and beautiful! And I thought that you had frosted the edges of the poinsettia! It looks lovely the way it is! :-)

Hi Bonnie. Stunning poinsettia card. The white edge gives it a frosty and snowy feel, love it. Thanks for joining the fun at ATSM. Monika

Oh Bonnie Stunning Card! Love your Bright Red Poinsettia!! TFS

MaryH said...

Actually, I like the edges as you have them on the flower cutout. It added a lot of dimension to the cutout (at least on my monitor!). That embossed white border is so elegant, and then to pop this bright flower on it...stunning, Miss Bonnie. TFS & Hugs.
