Today I made two cards; one with Snow Much Fun and the other one with Poinsettia Greetings.
Let's start with Poinsettia Greetings. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with Gansai Tambi watercolors. I did a light wash of the colors the first time. You can still see that effect in the blue background. But the colors turned out a bit too dull so I decided to add another layer of color to the poinsettia. I heat embossed the image before I started coloring it with gold embossing powder, this made it a lot easier to color.
I stamped the words 'Peace & Joy' with blue ink on a small white piece of paper and distressed the edges of the paper with the same blue ink. I adhered everything to a white card base, added some sequins and that's it.
For the second card I used 'Snow Much Fun'. I stamped the snowman on marker paper and colored it with alcohol markers. I cut out the image and looked for a couple of matching papers. I stamped the greeting from Poinsettia Greetings and added gold embossing powder to that too.
I hope you're inspired to create. And have fun on the blog hop! The next blog on the list is Lyn Tomlin.
