I made this card for a couple of challenges. I used the Midnight Madness sketch24 and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use Watercoloring.
I stamped my Flourishes image in VersaMark and heat embossed with Fine Detail Gold embossing powder by Ranger twice. I cut out the image twice so I could pop up some of the petals. The paper I used is that semi glossy cs I have used before that came from an office supply store. To see my description of this technique on this cs click here. I love using this glossy paper because there is a rich gloss to the finished design. (I am not sure whether a very glossy cs would work the same way or not.) I lightly wet the paper and then touched SU! Markers in appropriate places using Pretty in Pink and Blush Blossom to color the poinsettia. I did the same to the two die cut panels from my Spell Binder's Fleur de Lis center die.
For my sketch, I used a base of Papertrey Dark Chocolate, then Old Olive and then the Designer Paper is SU! Holiday Treasures. I still love this paper and am so glad I hoarded a bit of it last year so I can use it now! LOL! I used my SB Label #6 to cut the green label and embossed it, then did the same with Brushed Gold from the Paper Co.. I added the small Fleur de Lis die cuts in the green behind the gold, added lots of pearls from ZVA (available soon from Our Daily Bread designs). The image is popped up on dimensionals on both layers. I love how this one came out! I hope you do too!
As always, thanks for looking!!! Have a blessed week!
