Here's my card creation for today:
The background pink panel was color washed with the Peerless Jackqueminot Red. I really wet my brush and swiped a bit of the Peerless color and painted back and forth down the length of the panel. Easy peasey! I set that aside to dry or it could be heat set.
Because I'm a stencil kind-a-gal, I wanted to include a Dreamweaver Stencil. You might be asking what stencil I used and it is actually a partial section of the Christmas Borders stencil! It has that one tiny row of poinsettias that I thought were perfect for this card. All I did was tape with 3M Removable tape above and below the rows I didn't want and proceeded to paste using Translucent Paste. I used Translucent because I knew I was going to add pink glitter over the wet paste. That was set aside to dry.
Meanwhile, I wanted to match my ribbon to the card and spritzed a length of May Arts white ribbon and added the Peerless watercolor onto the ribbon with a paint brush. I may have added more spritz to blend to my liking. The ribbon was dried with a heat tool.
All that was left was assembling the card. The poinsettia image was cut down 4-1/2 x 4 in order to fit onto the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 pink panel. The ribbon was tied into a double bow first and then the poinsettia was affixed to the pink panel with 3M ATG Tape Runner.
Taking a piece of leftover scrap, Happy Holidays tag was gold embossed and punched with a McGill punch. The tag was edged with Tsukineko Delegato Golden Glitz ink. A tiny 1/8" hole was punched at the top of the tag and threaded with gold thread (my stash) and tied around the ribbon bow.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and will leave me a comment before you go! Thanks for stopping by.
