Christmas Joy Poinsettia

November 22, 2009

Today, DRS is sponsoring the sketch challenge over at Card Positioning System. It is such a fun sketch to create with. So if you like sketch challenge, come and take a shot at it.

For my card, I used the Giant Poisettia stamp from DRS Designs. This was stamped 3x on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then colored with Copic markers. After it was colored I cut out the 3 images. The first time I used the whole image and cut all around the edges. For the second 2 images I cut the flower only and removed the leaves. I then coated all three images with stickles and let completely dry. After is was dry I assembled all three layers and just rotated the flowers a tiny bit to make it look fuller. I also curved the flowers and leaves on each of the layers to give it more dimension. I used a Holly Berry brad to hold all 3 layers together. Here is a close-up look at just the poinsettia.
For the rest of the card, I die cut a beige cs with the Labels 8 die from Spellbinders. After I cut the panel, I then proceeded to emboss it, do a little shading and then sprayed it with Old Lace Glimmer Mist. After that the sentiment (Yesteryear Christmas Greeting) was stamped onto the panel with Tuxedo Black ink. Panel was matted with deep red cs and I also added some green half pearls. Paper that I used for the background is from the Wonderland Paper Pad of Cosno Cricket.

Now come on and take a look at what the other DRS Designs DT members have created as well as projects posted on the Card Positioning System blog.

Happy Weekend, everyone.
